The city of Tartu has the goal of implementing high-quality modern architecture in new public buildings. The new kindergarten, which is located in one of the most dilapidated areas of Tartu (the so-callled Chinatown is a former Soviet military garrison), is a result of this policy. The kindergarten´s layout – a six-cornered, star-shaped floor plan forced into a square – arose from the desire to avoid long corridors and to create an orderly outer perimeter and street space for the building. Building is situated on one edge of the plot and leaves the southern side free as a play area.

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.

As the site is small and triangular in shape, the project design has to focus on devoting as much exterior space as possible to the playground, in a single area oriented to the south. The simplicity of the exterior building envelope, in particular the roof which has a single slope, is only broken by two skylights which provide the natural light needed inside the classrooms in a uniform way.

Due to the increasing number of students, the local Oostduinkerke school needed to expand. The building premises are situated in the centre of town, in between the backyards of the surrounding buildings. The newly constructed nursery section will be partly underground. This way, the new building creates a number of benefi ts: A scenic integration with the build-up environment and a spacious outside play area for the children. All classes walk out into a wind-free covered class garden that serves as a safe outside area.

The building stands in the middle of a garden on a public square. The square is a uniformly sloping paved surface, planted with walnut trees and is the playground for the school. The garden is a circular crater, overgrown with a field of flowers, and is the outside play area for the kindergarten. The geometry of the garden and the level of the building are determined by a quadrate horizontal surface on which the building stands and by the two approaches.

How to synthesize a contextual, functional and aesthetic work through an architecture ?
The confidential characteristic of the Passage des Tourelles in the XXth arrondissement of Paris led us to imagine an opened equipment of proximity, a “breathing area” at the heart of a dense urban tissue.
The very particular presence of this nursery is expressed by a voluntarily marked architectural bias. An image shaped by the meeting of two entities where typologies, materials and asserted colours produce a reading which is simple, plural and sequential at the same time.

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.
