Lauterach is one of the most growing municipalities in Vorarlberg. “Recently, we have cracked the 10,000-inhabitant brand,” said Vice-Mayor Doris Rohner proudly. In addition, the town as an “e5” municipality has particularly committed to climate protection and do have a linking to high- quality architecture. This is also evident at the Kindergarten Bachgasse: 25 years the modular container made of wood is already in operation.
At the beginning of her professional career, Helmut Dietrich and Much Untertrifaller designed the nursery with skylights and sun screens in a very modular, functional and sustainable way.
Light and wood characterize this nursery: a sleek white fir for ceiling and walls, hard ash at the heated floor, the group rooms are glazed up to a height of 2.50 meters, both to the corridor and to the garden.
At this height, the walls are white with a surrounding wooden framework and acoustic ceilings create a homely atmosphere. A lot of loving details – such as the pull-out pedestals of the kitchen basements in the dining room, which also enable the smaller ones to reach the work area, the staircase load as a step-up aid on the changing table in the children’s toilet or the compartment for the parents’ make the building to a real children’s house..
