Nursery School in Alaba StreetEdit profile
bound by four prominent streets within a city block in barcelona, spain, the 'nursery school in àlaba street' designed by
barcelonian architect isabel bennasar projects a solid facade towards the urban context. within a complex which includes
an equipment area to the west and plot for future green space to the east, the single-storey center is inverted, opening the
internal void between two building volumes into an outdoor courtyard for daytime activity. bounded with a permeable facade,
nine groups within clusters of classrooms have direct access to a communal yard.
five classrooms are dedicated to infants and toddlers while the remaining four classrooms are reserved for the 2 to 3 year old children.
each room is programmatically divided with double height spaces near the glass facades and lower ceilings near the access to
the bathrooms and bedrooms. this allows natural daylight to enter through high windows while also allowing light to enter the
centralized multipurpose hall. another volume to the north contains administration spaces, kitchen, dining room and stroller storage.
