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.

In the district of the Olympics, the reconstruction of the kindergarten takes the shape of a toy gleaming between the towers and bars nearby. She participates in the revival of an operation planning, control of the 60/70, dense, and mixed functional. In this lively neighborhood, the city undertook a project of land consolidation and redevelopment of outdoor spaces. The school, tiny among the towers, intends to play its role in this context: enhancing the image of the equipment and resist the overwhelming presence of nearby buildings and pervasiveness of the concrete.

The kindergarten ‘Dandelion Clock’ educates children with physical or developmental handicaps. Four similar modules form the building, three of which contain two classrooms and a therapy room. Overhangs shade façades and permit outdoor play in poor weather. The units are radially distributed about an atrium, which serves as a traffic zone, an indoor playing field, and a dining hall. This center is naturally lit and ventilated by four roof monitors.

The integrated kindergarten ‘Dragen’ sets new standards, as a sustainable and pedagogically thought-through design. The components are largely ‘Nordic Swan’ eco-labelled. The construction is a certified passive-house, using a minimum of energy. And the children’s needs and well-being has been the main driver in the design.
The fundamental architectural concept is a simple and clear geometric form on two levels, with the children’s areas located in the best-lit southern end. The two levels are linked by staircases and ramps which are designed to stimulate and challenge the children’s sensory and motor skills.

The proposal for the new kindergarten and multipurpose hall provides to rearrange the lot in question via a solution that has its strength in simplicity, bridging the gap to the free sides of the area: the volume of the school is supported throughout via Nola, while the cube-shaped multipurpose hall marks the public entrance into via Ferri. In this way the volumes effectively reply both to its urban intensity, as public buildings in connection with the city, and to its function of prodrome respect to the internal vacuum. The volume of the school follows the type of its urban surroundings: set back from the road edge for the access and oriented along north-south axis to support the development of the future green line that will go from here till the lake of Lugano. The multipurpose hall chairs the empty neighborhood public gardens by adding to its collective function the one of gate of the park.

The geometry of the project is at the same time the starting point and the leit motiv which joints all the space. Although it is easily recognizable as a roof, its scale doesn’t answer to what could be expected in a first view. It is a childhood house but it could have any other public use. We wanted it was clearly understood as the first pictures of a house all children draw and, once inside, everybody could discover the surprise of the volume.

The project is located between in an urban area with a residential neighbourhood mainly with social housing for low income families uphill and an area with various public buildings at the lower part of the valley. The elderly day centre is in between these rather different social, programmatic and physical realities, thus celebrating both its private and public character.

The school is organised in three parts. The central and most public area contains the main entrance, the library, gymnasium, refectory, activities and workshop areas, multi-purpose room, school administration and covered playground. These spaces are organised so that they can be used independently by the local community. The library is at the core of the school common areas, connecting the school entrance to the building and to the main playground.
