Child-care Centre at Vrilissia

Completion: 2007
Location: Athens

The day-care centre consists of a 1,026.60 m² single-storied building with basement and roof garden that accommodates 60 toddlers.
One particular goal of our design was to facilitate movement and orientation within the building while providing for uninterrupted operation during the addition of a second tier that will host babies. The designed integration of the building to its environment ensures suitable microclimate in its interior and immediate outdoor spaces, and reduces energy consumption for heating and cooling. Due to the partition of the facades, the internal yard presents corners of variable character (town-square, open-ground, garden, park, playground). The day-care rooms stand apart due to their cubic shape and more vibrant colours.
