Feld72 has built a new kindergarten in Terenten, a mountain village in the Val Pusteria in South Tyrol in Italy. The child daycare centre has been designed as a unique and individual building which nevertheless merges smoothly with the surrounding built environment. The sloping terrain to the east of the primary school has been used to accommodate a lower ground floor. Thus, only half of the required building volume is visible to passers-by, and a new public space has been created between the school and the daycare centre. The centre is reached on foot from the pedestrian zone via a level entry area (+3.84m=1,223.8m). The entry level ground floor contains two classrooms, plus sanitary facilities and cloakrooms, the personnel area with two offices, and a multi-purpose area with a “parents’ corner”. Rooms can be flexibly used as stages for children’s activities, but also as quiet retreats. All outer building walls are double-layered, exposed white concrete; wood formwork was used for construction. Roofing is made of hand-cut larch shingles.
