Daniel Valle Architects, Maebong Daycare Center in Seoul (South Korea)

Reduce the scale of the building so that the children can better relate with the construction. With this idea as starting point, the Madrid practice of Daniel Valle fragments the child center in the South Korean capital into five volumes that differ in geometry, materials, and colors. The windows vary in height and size so that adults and children alike can view the exterior directly.The créche is organized around a central staircase colored blue, and a large skylight above brightens up the heart of the building. The main entrance faces the wider street so that the children cannot exit to the road directly, but have to go through a transition space which also serves as a security area, a playground, and a muffler of traffic noise.
