[FIRST LOOK + PLANS + DATA] Larraz, Beguiristain and Bergera have completed this colourful nursery school in Berriozar, Spain
The nursery’s childcare facilities are organised around three communal spaces, an internal ‘plaza’ at the heart of the building that acts as a space for the school’s common activities and two separate courtyards located at either end of the longitudinal plan.
The classrooms are each directly connected to both the central square and the playgrounds that are contained within the colourful lattice that wraps the entire building.
Unlike the chromatic exterior the interior spaces are designed to be ‘serene and neutral’ with natural light and ventilation provided by skylights
