An original kindergarten, designed by Paul le quernec Architectes, was built in Bule-Moselle, a small town in the south-eastern part of France.

The architects have focused their attention on the safety and security of children, using soft curved shapes that are almost completely eliminated sharp angles inside the building. Aiming to create an open and friendly environment, it was decided to abandon the traditional corridors, and arrange all facilities around the central tent-like object, which rises above the building.

A curved roof flows smoothly to the playground, protecting children from the harmful effects of the sun and creating a recreational space that can be used throughout the year. For maximum safety of children the building was set back from the street, and one-way traffic reduces chances of accidents.

At first glance, the complex structure of the building is actually built of brick, according to traditional methods, and then it was painted white with bright cheerful pattern.

Partitions of double drywall sheets provided good insulation and for the greatest comfort for kids underfloor heating was arranged in the whole building.

A kindergarten Giraffe Childcare Center designed by French architect Hondelatte Laporte Architectes opened in the Paris suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt. A huge yellow giraffe, whose head is literally pierces through a 3-storey building of the center, cannot be missed.

The giant giraffe acts as a pillar to hold the third floor of the children’s center, which is hovering above the ground. From the street you can see only the legs and a long neck with a head, but the body is completely hidden inside the building.
Inside the kindergarten the architects settled a polar bear and a family of ladybugs.

The municipal kindergarten turned out not very big. It is designed only for 80 children. The building was design to be simple and convenient for kids. Each of the three levels of the building has a playground.

The Child Center is built on the riverside, near the Horizons office complex, work of the well-known architect Jean Nouvel.
