The project is located in an area of new growth in the municipality of El Vendrell, Tarragona, on a plot of 32 x 29 metres totally flat with easy access from the street. With an almost square rectangular shape the nursery is built for children between 0 and 3 years of age. The project has been designed taking into account that children at this age are learning to walk and the possibility that all the classrooms have access to the outside garden is very relevant.
The configuration of the building is resolved with a central circulation atrium with the classrooms and other uses around it, in such a way that they are served by the four façades and the perimeter courtyards. These courtyards are partially covered by green pergolas from the different façades to the perimeter enclosure.
The entire kindergarten is developed on a single floor, occupying the entire building land. The distance to the thresholds established by the regulations is used to situate the playgrounds as an extension of each of the classrooms.
It was decided to use warm, environmentally friendly, recyclable and harmless materials for the children, making the most of the light and natural resources that facilitate play and activities, providing maximum wellbeing for the pupils.
The centrifugal organisation around an atrium with zenithal light and a wooden porticoed structure defines the construction of all the spaces in a clear, honest and didactic way.
