Larraz, Beguiristain & Bergera: nursery school in Berriozar (Navarre)

Louis I. Kahn wrote that the first school probably began when a man under a tree who did not know he was a teacher began to discuss what he had learned with others, who did not know they were students”. Establishing a parallelism between tree and architecture, Javier Larraz, Iñigo Beguiristain and Iñaki Bergera have completed a kindergarten in the Navarrese town of Berriozar, six kilometers from Pamplona, that builds on the pedagogical value of spaces for the teaching of small children. Taking from the model of municipal schools in the Italian region of Reggio Emilia, with rooms arranged around a central court, but adapting to the elongated shape of the site, the patios are moved to the far ends, and in between are the classrooms and ancillary facilities. Such a layout makes it necessary to ventilate and bring daylight into the interiors through the roof, with skylights that in the process become identifying features of the school. The concrete building is surrounded by a multicolored lattice that also cheers up the playground courtyards.
