The new day care center of Göttingen University is the most recent case study of several typological educational prototypes Despang Architekten has investigated in within the last years. The strategy of this project is a symbiosis of architecture and nature with a high ecological standard. The symbiosis was achieved through mainly berming the building and opening it with a passive solar “curtain wall” towards the south. Part of the goal was the development of a by the best value of the inflationary term sustainable building, which besides other performative aspects has a very low heating and cooling demand. Critical and fundamental in the design process was the maximum exposure to the south and closure to the north with optimized insulation. Access to the building is given from the east and utilizes the given infrastructure of the two adjacent buildings.

Sølund retirement community is situated at one of the most distinguished locations in Copenhagen, in the vibrant urban space between the Copenhagen Lakes to the one side and the dynamic city street of Ryesgade to the other. Henning Larsen Architects’ proposal for the new Sølund is designed as one large, continuous building block that engages in close dialogue with the surrounding buildings and creates simple, easily accessible spatialities – both on the inside and on the outside. The project also includes a new daycare centre.

We meant this day care, designed for the small town of Zsámbék near to the capital, to be a building which can add value to this small-town and featureless residential built enviroment.
We mixed the functionally strict floor plan of the créche with a traditional and community building space form – the cloister. We’ve placed the group rooms and the central multifunctional space around the cloister. This way the créche became appropriate for developing relationship between parents and organising baby-parent events as well.

Situed on a very small piece of land, the project has been enriched by the resistance from the site to the elements of the mission brief. First of all, this « family crèche » is a living space where the children thrive and a workplace for the staff. The building is the set for this environment in every aspects and needs but also in its poetical dimension.
