We have decided for a round building with rectangular interior courtyard, when faced with the irregular plot shape (more a result of existing spatial planning norms than a conscious planning choice).

Windows at the first and second floor are shaped as different sea creatures – fish, shrimp and jellyfish. Ground floor, where the youngest children are, is fully glazed. Glazing in the interior courtyard is partially colored to give beautiful color shadows in the corridors.

The interior is light and simple taking into consideration the amount of colorful toys to fill the space later. Each floor has its color accent – yellow, orange or blue.
