Kindergarten by Dorte Mandrup

Beachside kindergarten with a jagged timber form in Sweden.
The 525-square-metre building is located on a patch of grass in front of an old school building, which has a white rendered facade and orange-toned roof tiles. The center accepts children in four different age groups and each is housed under a separate gable. Two facing the water and two point towards the original school house. Timber-clad roof planes span the spaces between the four gables, creating the sloping surfaces that the architects compare to a sandy beach landscape.
