This crèche is an integrated part of the project for the new general building for the Council of Europe. It is designed to provide facilities for up to 60 children. It stands among large trees and adopts an expressive language that is organic in nature and in keeping with the playful world of children. It uses curves and natural materials, abandoning alignments in favour of volumes that stand in a relationship of mutual tension through the use of oblique lines.
The abundant use of wood, the play of curves, and the oblique lines that place the volumes in a sensitive relationship create the impression of an organic architecture that clearly integrates into the natural site.
