Kinderhaus Sonnenschein, Wertingen

Kategorie: Kindergarten
Total construction time: December 2011 – October 2012 

Extension/newbuild of a day nursery for 150 children in five groups (2 morning groups, 2 all-day groups and one after-school group for schoolchildren in years 1-4).

Challenges

A new extension to the existing building, fitted out with lots of natural materials and designed predominantly in wood.

Innovation

Timber-frame building with cross-laminated timber elements, some visible from inside and some covered with plasterboard (for acoustics and design).

Solution

Untreated, visible solid wood in the form of cross-laminated timber elements coupled with white walls and linoleum flooring designed to look like a green field. Light flooding into the building through the use of large glass surfaces and optical openings in the wooden walls lend the whole building a sense of airy opennes.

Result

A kindergarten building where children and their carers feel comfortable. No overheated group rooms in the summer and very little heat loss in the winter thanks to the exterior shell being perfectly designed for energy conservation. This is modern climate protection at work with a caring and cosy atmosphere inside.

Transfer

The 'Kinderhaus Sonnenschein' is a place for children to feel good, have fun and enjoy themselves in a natural and peaceful atmosphere created out of wood.
