Primetime Nursery SchoolEdit profile
This project is the first Brazilian nursery developed from a program specially directed for children aged from zero to 3 years, based on an exclusive educational concept. The focus of the project was to incorporate the specificities of this program, seeking adequate creative solutions. The priority was to conceive of an abstract non-stereotypical space with a ludic character that would meet the functional demands of the numerous procedures involved. Circulation is achieved through ramps and the use of friendly materials such as, the soft floor and operational ergonometry, were fundamental for a safe and comfortable environment where the children could readily develop their activities. Ergonomics for both the babies and the educators was also a priority, since an educator whose physical needs are well taken care of is free to focus on the babies, their needs and development. The technical team involved adhered to this same orientation, offering ideal solutions for the best air and water quality, floor heating and balanced lighting. The landscaping was equally conceived to guarantee the safe interaction among the children. The building is a visible cement block with a glass facade (southeast) and micro-perforated metal sheet facade (northwest), placed above a receding polycarbonate volume.On the ground floor, above the main block, there are two activity-filled colored blocks that jointly form a covered patio. Surrounding it, a large yellow wall, a circulation path of ramps that ends at a large glass window from where the city and the start of the pathway in the square can be seen. Therefore, Primetime building is a physical rendition of its concept: making the best of each and every natural development opportunity for 0-3 year old children. It’s clean style was conceived to emphasize the human element. Based on geometrical shapes and warm colors (yellow, orange and red), its abstract architecture stimulates imagination, emotion and sensations.
