Nursery In Lessines

A nursery is a place of life that has a special place in the world of “services” because of the very nature of its function. Indeed, this environment is more than a workplace.

Nursery In Lessines

It forms a microcosm of parents, children and staff. This multiplicity of actors and roles induces various ways of using the space. It also involves complex interrelationships where the built environment is the support.

We are particularly interested in the spaces of the child, who is a extremely sensitive user. Because a child does not perceive the space in the same way as an adult does not only in size but also by its own logic under construction.

The project contains 3 sections organized in the same manner to provide the child with a stable environment in time and space. Each section addresses five types of activities: reception, care, play (indoor and outdoor), meals and rest. These activities define sub-areas observable by an adult at all points in order to maintain constant supervision of children.

The program was crystallized in a very energy-efficient project. The building takes a very compact form. The project is oriented north-south and east-west. Northern face contains the technical parts and circulations. The southern part is protected from overheating being relatively closed.

The nursery therefore opens mainly east and west. Both sides offer the softest and most suited lights. Both areas focus living spaces like activity rooms and administrative offices.

The nursery takes position on the fringe of a strong landscape structure, careers and the city of Lessines. These issues are embodied in a building that opens new possibilities … Living in the landscape.
