Lacroix Chessex Architectes, nursery at Chapelle-Les Sciers in Lancy

 
In Lancy, a city of the Canton of Geneva, stands a new nursery designed by the firm headed by Hiéronyme Lacroix and Simon Chessex. With a useful floor area of 1,979 square meters, the wood-clad building shares the limelight with the playground courytard, which is incrusted 60 centimeters below ground level. The program is distributed simply and clearly, with two wings accommodating four groups of children and the north part housing the communal facilities. A spacious foyer ties the different zones of the nursery together. The Geneva-based architects conceives the building and the courtyard as two pieces of a puzzle, linking the outside world to the indoor spaces.
