Construction of a crèche for 44 children at the centre of a residential block, above an existing underground carpark. The existing infrastructure (3-storey underground car park) was modified to accommodate technical and utility rooms and to integrate the main entrance to the building (corridor, staircase, lift).
The building consists of a timber and metal structure placed on the edge of an existing concrete slab. This slab was extended as a cantilever, creating an overhang that projects from the south façade of the building.
A contemporary garden is situated on the crèche’s green roof (described by the architect as an “origami”).
