We won the mini competition to design Vanhainen Kindergarten in Northern Helsinki in 2020. The kindergarten creates a landmark by the neighborhood’s main road Soittajantie. The kindergarten has learning environments for 224 children, and it also serves the community for gathering and evening activities. Our concept has a playful threefold roof, which slopes towards the courtyard, forming a sheltered terrace area. Wood is used both on the exterior and interior. The project will qualify for Joutsenmerkki environmental certificate.
