Karela-Koski Kindergarten in Sortavala

Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
The kindergarten for 250 kids is designed in the heart of the new residential quarters. The glass-paned dome and the stained glass windows on the facades highlight the swimming pool section and the central entrance composition with a music studio and the indoor playgrounds. Such design ensures a tight connection with the environment plus perfect illumination all the year round.   All the indoor premises are so light and open, with no gloomy corridors. The materials used are wood, concrete, and glass, which makes the proposal compliant with today’s power and sustainability demands.
