Their vertical arrangement was chosen by the architects and by Van Santen (responsible for the engineering of the façades) to give a more slender, dynamic look to a building which is prevalently horizontal in orientation.
This extremely simple architecture is designed to precise criteria both inside and out: creating a welcoming environment for the children who attend the nursery and responding to their specific needs while fitting into the urban fabric around it harmoniously and helping to add new life to the area.
The project received a special mention in the Solutia Design Awards 2005.
