Text description provided by the architects.

The project brief demanded increasing the capacity of the existing urban daycare center from 35 to 75 children.
The existing daycare center was housed in a decrepit church, which ZAmpone chose to demolish and replace with a new building.
On the same site there is also a school and a parish hall in the back.

The building is a result of an intense cooperation of the landlord and the architect taking into account all the parties on and around the site.
The 6 living areas for the children are placed on the first floor.
This creates a compact footprint on the ground level and a maximal (covered) play area for the daycare center.

On the first floor an airy whole benefits from the central skylights and the living area linked terraces.
ZAmpone foresees in surprising view-throughs on children’s size, a warm materiality and a bathing in light party area for the smallest among us.
