Citrusy freshness for Kindergarten: by RipollTizon
This cheerful building for Consell Kindergarten (Mallorca, Spain) has been incarnated by the architects of the Spanish Office RipollTizon. The building has an unusual Z-shaped form and includes a few classrooms, psychomotor classroom and a dining area with a kitchen. The form of the building was chosen as necessity of creating a connection with the adjacent housing, and opportunity for entering the kindergarten from the main avenue. The coloration of the kindergarten repeats the colors of the groves nearby, where oranges, lemons and limes grow. The classrooms are clustered by two; the clusters have a glazed facade and a porch towards an outdoor playground. The construction protects the terrace against rain. Orientation to the east provides natural daylighting.
