The new Prangins kindergarten is conceived as one big house that has been placed on a sloping site. The cruciform structure resulting from the interlocking volumes allow it to have a special relationship with the neighbouring ensemble. The four volumes, which are mutually staggered by a third of each unit’s floor height and interleaved, make the building appear to be smaller and visually less obtrusive.

The design concept identifies three key concerns. Firstly: the need to slot a new building into the topography and character of a 19th century park with respect to its historic neighbouring structures, in particular a nearby chapel. Secondly: the desire to create a welcoming and lively educational environment both for children and the adults who work there. And last but not least: the aspiration to employ innovative technology to create a building that produces more energy than it consumes.

“It is important for children to like the Maison de la Petite Enfance, for them to feel comfortable there, free yet safe. It has to be gentle and tender with them, participate in their education, help them find their marks and stimulate their imaginations” – The elected officials of Lieusaint
With the children’s well-being in mind this is how NOMADE Architectes designed and carried out the project.
The town of Lieusaint is a community located 35 kilometers to the southeast of Paris in the Seine et Marne département. Serviced by RER line D, it is part of the greater Sénart region.
After a competition for the project, NOMADE Architectes was commissioned to design and build this facility that it wanted to make a symbol of developmental for the region.
The project responded to Lieusaint’s desire to build a prominent facility for early childhood.
