Recently, we have been happy to work with landscape architects from the In Site studio. They approach us to design outdoor classrooms for kindergarten gardens, which are created in their studio.
This outdoor classroom follows the likeable "insect" concept, which has become the theme of the kindergarten garden itself. With its concept, it refers a bit to today's popular insect hotels. In the case of a real „insect hotel“ – there are many different sections, where all kinds of insect can hide. In our case, these sections do have different functions - in one section there are storage boxes, in another there is a chalkboard color, in another there are game elements. The circular openings in the front façade resemble the holes that are typical of insect activity. So there are many parallels, only instead of insects, children are swarming here!

The supporting construction system made of KVH prisms is cladded with wooden-boards. On the side, some surfaces are lined with MDF boards painted with chalk-board paint, or for lightening with glass fillings. The interior equipment (shelves, benches under the blackboard) is made of bioboard. Dome skylights are installed in the roof.
