The kindergarten is organized in a number of longitudinal zones from the exterior playground, the roofed outdoor terraces that gives a good micro climate (very important in our rough climate), 'the indoor street' with water-play areas and a winter garden feel to it, the bases and to the innermost reading nooks and mezzanines.

These zones contribute to make a soft transition from the exterior to the interior spaces – from the exposed wide landscape to the intimate zones.The 'rough' wardrobes, the kitchen and the playing rooms are peeking out of the facade.

The four bases each have an inner wardrobe which also can be used as a play area. The bases can be opened or closed off towards the indoor street and wardrobes, and each have two adjustable playing walls. The reading nooks and mezzanines are more intimate spaces for quieter activities.
