Like a giant Lego building, the kindergarten is constructed entirely in bare brick, forming patterns and openings that are playful to the eyes, conveying a unique aesthetic value and promoting natural ventilation. Classrooms and utility rooms are organized around a playful core. Each floor is arranged in an alternating pattern to enhance vertical interaction, encouraging children to be more receptive of their surroundings and stimulating their inner creativity. The architecture provides environments for both pupils and staff that promote exploration and offers various opportunities for nteraction.
