The building is conceived as a solid which is cut, shaved and carved to suit the requirements of the envelope and internal accommodation. Externally the solid has been rebated to produce a dramatic cantilever over the play area. Internally the irregular spaces fill the section and ancillary areas are characterised with child level windows and niches for sinks and worktops.
