Epée de Bois Nursery by h2o architectesJuly 22, 2014
Designed for 24 children, the extension is built on the rear of an existing building at the end of the courtyard. A lightweight, pleated canvas shell that wraps around the extension provides shade for the ground floor nursery and a translucent wall for the 1st floor play terrace.
Its undulations indicate the entrances.
The nursery is built on three levels, with the children occupying the ground and first floor while technical and private spaces are relegated to the basement.
Children can look out across the courtyard from the first floor roof terrace which functions as an open playground.
A trellis encourages climbing plants to grow high into the structure to create a leafy privacy screen across the nursery's windows.
