Designed as a sculptural form, new kindergarten house erects from the terrain. The design of the building has for a goal to provide a strong visual identity and it is based on its function, as a feature (Casa Di Bambini Felici). The garden lobes that spread from ground to the roof, envelope oval units of the house making the connection of the building with the ground, whilst they tend to provide new program to the local community.Design tends to connect the program of the kindergarten with its surrounding, where the building becomes the integral part of the location activities, respectively the park. This elements represent the basic visual characteristic of the building. The space was designed as flexible, according to the principles of open plan, so it could be adjusted to the needs of its users. The block is morphologically and by function divided in two main sectors, respectively groups of rooms and gardens. The first sector is noisy area, whilst the second sector is the quiet area.
