A fresh, new Kinderland
The spa town of Bad Tölz invested in an attractive, functional new building for a kindergarten. The material specs included a great deal of wood to create a feel-good, homely atmosphere for both children and staff.
The residents of Bad Tölz appreciate the value of high-quality childcare and know that it requires modern premises and facilities. The district town of the Upper Bavarian rural district of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen, which is 50 kilometres south of Munich, decided to put their money where their mouth was and commissioned su und z Architekten of Munich to design an impressive new building for the Kinderland Weyarn kindergarten.
A timber building with natural charm
The single-storey building complex on the premises of the Jahnschule includes a long main building of about 950 square metres, a wing housing the kitchen, refectory and a multi-purpose room, as well as a covered terrace of about 200 square metres with an adjoining garden.
The inviting light larch wood façade lends a natural charm to the low-rise building with its gabled roof.
Flooded with light
The interior of the new kindergarten, which can accommodate around 100 children, is likewise dominated by light wood. It is used as cladding on the walls and for the doors and window frames, bestowing a real sense of warmth. The child-friendly furnishings are also made mostly of wood.
The building offers four large group rooms of 50 square metres each. Each room is equipped with a spacious vestibule, which is perfectly integrated into the airy, light-flooded rooms with expansive glazing to the front. There is also a door to the outside area here.
The dark grey floors form a pleasing visual contrast to the wooden walls and ceilings. The Troldtekt acoustic panels installed on the ceilings harmoniously round off the overall design, while also ensuring improved room acoustics.
