This design for an after-school childcare centre is part of the protected townscape of the Dennenoord care estate in Zuidlaren. It forms a sheltered ensemble with the existing day care centre.
The position of the building on the grounds, in combination with the new landscaping, clarifies the relationship of the day care centre with the rest of the care facilities and organises the different rhythms and uses on the shared plot.
The direct relationship of the classrooms with the outdoors strengthens the nature-oriented principles of the day-care centre. The classrooms can be linked together and because of the mezzanine floors, offer settings for different possibilities of use
