Nursery School
Collegio San Carlo

Milan - 2011

The project ensures that the new function is recognizable inside the Collegio. The extension of the nursery school includes – as well as 6 classrooms – 2 activity areas, 3 blocks of toilets, a kitchen, a changing room and a roof-garden with a play area and one for the allotments. The classrooms have mezzanines conceived as special spaces on a child’s scale, a sort of look-out tower with a coloured interior, which allow looking out on to the roof-garden, on to the classroom and – through the portholes – on to the common area.
