Hestia Daycare Centre
The Hestia Day-Care Centre follows the philosophy of Reggio Emilia. This philosophy also contains a number of explicit statements on architecture, which have been translated into a spatial concept for the new building. The building is perceived as a city. A collection of different spaces allows children to discover new places and go on a voyage of discovery. All of the spaces are connected to each other just as they are in a real city and you can go from a big room to a small one, from a high room to a low one. A framework of service modules are structured by being fit into a grid, which is not confined to the building but also becomes the design concept for the exterior space. The exterior is extended throughout the building by designing various rooms like exterior space. Different scales can be experienced as a result of the subtle use of height differences between the rooms themselves.
