This new centre clusters individual buildings around a common "piazza"

The Familienzentrum im Steinpark Kindergarten in Germany and designed by nbundm utilises simple forms that when clustered seemingly randomly create a number of various spaces and the notion of a village.

This arrangement meant each building could cater to one of the 8 groups, whilst all spilling out onto a central courtyard (or "piazza") space for shared learning and play.

A shared hall, dining and staff areas are also included.

The centre cleverly uses a minimal palette of materials meant to last. Prepatinated larch for the exterior cladding, and varnished spruce for the inside spaces.

A carefully selected colour palette is chosen, which combined with low hanging lights and and an abundance of large windows creates a homely feel.

Continuing with the timber theme, tree stumps are used both internally and externally. Adding both a natural and fun element to the otherwise minimalist design.

Playful and functional elements have been incorporated, with ample built-in storage as well as custom-designed furniture and cushions.

The green floors combined with the natural and textural timber qualities creating the feeling of being among the trees.
