A kindergarten that takes its inspiration from stacked toy blocks

The design of this EC centre is reminiscent of the contemporary or "late modern" institutional approach. While perhaps a tad too sterile in my opinion, the architecture does exhibit fine detailing and craftmanship and some fun and playful characteristics.

"White-washed" precast concrete panels are paired with coloured semi-transparent glass facades. The architects (LBR + A) taking thier inspiration from stacked toy blocks.

Limited space (the kindergarten shares the site with an existing primary and elementary school) meant combining ground play areas with elevated terraces. 

Circular windows of varying sizes, shallow atrium stairs (for sitting or performing) and a range of regular, curving and irregular paths and forms work to create spaces for play and exploration.
