The huge outdoor area with lots of trees providing plenty of shade right in the middle of Hamburg Bahrenfeld were key when deciding where to situate „Freie Kindergärten Elbvororte‘s“ childcare with its focus on movement.
kindergarten with a focus on movement
The associated inner part is located at the ground floor of a typical office complex with a rigid grid. By close cooperation with the childcare‘s team and the parents council the floor is transformed into a colourful institution for 80 children. The open pedagogical concept was met by rooms that float openly into each other.
The budget was tight and called for a lot of creativity by everyone involved in order to meet the demanding goals. Heart and centre of the childcare is the spacious corridor linking restaurant and movement area with each other.
It is where feasts, exhibition and the parents Café take place. During winter it is also space for playing adding to the openly designed group and functional areas which are facing the garden.
