The Progect

The design of the new Municipality of Camposanto nursery involved the construction of a single-story building within an area set aside for urban greenery, now called “Parco Arcobaleno della Pace” (The Rainbow Peace Park).

The new nursery school is designed for a total of 23 children aged between 12 and 36 months.

The design proposal was derived from a series of analyses relating firstly, to the context and the services already present in the area (pedestrian areas, pedestrian paths etc.) and secondly to requirements strictly related to the design of a nursery school itself (shape, colours, arrangement of facilities, teaching requirements, bio-climatic adaptations and orientation), thirdly to technical requirements, such as the use of constructive technologies using pre-fabricated wood elements, and finally, the analysis of time and economics to ensure the building could be constructed as quickly as possible.
