Having an archaic form with a gable roof as a "typical house" and in particular as a "house for children" the building become integrated into the context, without denying its usage.
The design is a mixture (hybrid) of concrete and timber. The entire basement and the ceiling and load bearing walls in the ground and first floor were made of concrete. The whole building from exterior walls and roof was built as a timber construction with prefabricated elements. The structural distinction is readable and understandable on and in the building by differentiated material languages and surfaces. The interior and exterior appearance of the building is marked by the materiality of the wood. The facade consists of an open profiled, glazed gray larch cladding. Inside, the wood is experienced by the shelf units of three-layer panels in silver fir. The "shelf area" is not only for storage, but is also a place as cosy corner and as a zone for installation of the controlled ventilation for the group and rest rooms.
The rooms for the daycare are south-facing with large windows. By the curved design of the sanitary areas as a "block in the space” it gets created a individual space in front of each cluster group.
In terms of sustainability and energy efficiency, a low-energy building is achieved, which remains 39% below the standard for new buildings.
