BUILDING A NURSERY SCHOOL
The design of our building is contemporary and welcoming, however, we also made sure that our project would successfully be integrated into its environment, including the nearby château d’Aguerria.
The architecture and the curved shape were designed so as to be comforting and safe for the children. The gable roof covering one part of the building echoes the roofs of the neighbouring houses, creating thereby a link between our project and its environment. The rest of the roof is covered with vegetation. This green roof has both a technical and aesthetic function. Not only does it give the building a touch of modernity, it also helps regulate the inside temperature.
In the nursery, the living spaces are large and light, creating a cheerful and playful atmosphere.
