The project regards the extension and renovation of an existing educational building and its surrounding landscape. The programmatic arrangement is expressed visually on each façade; on one side, six classrooms are developed in a direct relationship with the exterior space, while on the other side, other main and supporting functions are located. The design addresses the Kindergarten as an “object/toy” in a scale of 1:1 shaped by white and wooden parts that has sought inspiration in the “modules” of a “Lego” type system that, when added together they formulate the final composition.
