Sofie Haug Children’s Day – Care Centre

Mystic woodland sanctum for children as contemporary emulation The architects have created an enchantingly mystic hybrid-timber building with a walkout basement set into a slope, its architecture emulating the terrain, perfectly adapted to the surrounding woodland. The brightly framed entrance is set at an angle within the two-story timber façade made of charred spruce and contrasting glazed teal spruce that weaves a pattern. To the south, there is a protective access balcony structure with ultra-slim steel columns and two hot-dip galvanized steel stairways descending to the playground. Timber and steel form a creative workshop space for children. The embedded glazed walkout basement with its movement space is filled with atmosphere. Reflections and the supporting structure showing through as a stylized root system interconnect architecture and nature.
