Kindergarten has capacity of 75 children and is part of a new residential area. Building is defined by pavilion concept and by its close relationship with natural surroundings. Pavilion character connects scale of the building to adjacent detached houses and also allowed for construction in separate phases. Optimistic and calm atmosphere of the building was created by applying real and mostly natural materials which are used in its natural colour and texture. Durability of materials was emphasized. Exterior material concept naturally flows into the interior. Main entrance is clearly defined by slightly elevated composition and adjacent public space - both corresponding to the significance of the building. Both K+R and permanent parking are placed outside this public space. Southern elevation turns to the garden and is created by flowing composition of pavilions with screened terraces. Northern elevation impresses by its strong linearity completed with playfully scattered windows.

One of the clients’ objectives was to allow for possible construction in separate phases – depending on funding possibilities. Building is constructed of hollow clay blocks; it is based on concrete foundations and has reinforced concrete roof slabs. Thermal insulation meets Passivhaus u-values. Facades vary according to different parts of the building from ETICS (pavilions) to copper standing seam cladding (facilities), to wooden cladding (main entrance), to aluminium composite cladding (side entrances). Continuous air barrier was designed, created and tested to meet the Passivhaus standards. Exterior shading is secured by roof overhangs and screen roller blinds. Building is heated by gas condensing boiler combined with radiant floor heating and/or radiators – dependent on particular room. Design includes rain water management too – accumulation and usage for the garden watering.
