The new kindergarten building should reflect the idea of how to use a plot of land with a distinct relief as efficiently and cleverly as possible - creating a new modern innovative space that enhances and reveals new environmental qualities. The project offer aims to create a place for children to get to know the world, where to grow and learn in the direct presence of nature and peace.
The project solutions actively use the existing relief situation, allowing to create visually small, gradually growing volumes on the street front, which do not compete with existing mansions. On the south side, the building opens at full height, reaching 2 floors, thus gaining maximum effect from sunlight and heat.
