Kindergarten Ohlsdorf

Childcare with a clear cubature and playful indoors

In this competition for a childcare we proposed a clearly structured timberframe building.The pedagogical concept for the 110 children includes a multi age approach taking place in differently themed rooms


Two L-shaped buildings with shifted and rotated cubes form the geometry of this two-story childcare.

The boxes within create gaps, room to contemplate and, seating areas. 

A double height entrance hall links the „Kinderrestaurant“ to the upper multipurpose area. Windows inside the building frame views and offer new perspectives. Every group room has not only a terrace door but is also equipped with a large window to allow well lit playing.

The timberframe construction allows a later addition of two further grouprooms at the northern front of the building. The light brick which continues on the inside brings the outside into the entrance hall.
