Nursery School Buildings
We've selected what we feel are the key examples of Nursery Schools. We aim to include Nurseries / Kindergarten projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed Kindergartens, new building designs and architecture competitions across the world. The focus is on contemporary Nursery buildings but information on traditional Kindergarten buildings is also welcome.

Escola Bressol Jardins Malaga - added 4 Oct 2012
The redesign of the Malaga gardens, located in the block interior bounded by Nicaragua, Berlin, Numancia and Avenida Josep Tarradelas streets, in Barcelona, promoted the allocation of a small site for the construction of an education facility: a nursery. The rectangular shaped site is attached to a dividing wall one of its long sides closing the block interior, and faces the gardens on the other.

Ecole Maternelle Nimes - 20 Sep 2012
A large part of the programme is placed on the first upper floor to comply with flood protection requirements for the area. As a result, the architecture is unique among the design schemes produced by the firm. The building seems to float a few metres above the ground, like a vessel hovering at the height of the roofs of the surrounding houses.

Crèche rue Pierre Budin Paris - 6 Jul 2012
The project takes place into a heterogeneous district made of buildings of any sizes, of any styles, any periods. It’s an environment slightly old-fashioned, hybrid and disintegrated, typical of the heterogeneous architecture which characterizes the Parisian peri-urban zones. Modernity came to complete this disorder : Adjacent to the site, an out of size construction, built in derogation of the property limits (adding a supplementary urban intention parameter), forbids any common denominator, any possibility of creating a homogeneous composition.

Nursery School Rome - 4 Jul 2011 : Regione Lazio Headquarters
The winning project’s aim of studioUAP is to welcome children in a peaceful place able to stimulate curiosity like in a garden. Once you step inside, a magic dimension arises from the unconventional entrance hall: trees scattered everywhere mark all the children’s areas. The entrance hall has a symbolic spacial value as a transition from the family life to the educational community where children and educators interact.
