Sansaburu Kindegarten by VAUMM

Basque architects VAUMM have completed a kindergarten at Eibar in Gipuzkoa, Spain (via yatzer).

The locations of the classrooms has been designed to catch natural light depending upon the position of the sun and the nursery timetable.

The building’s two wings surround a central courtyard.

See our earlier story about VAUMM’s town hall and pelota court at Arribe Ataio in Navarra, Spain.

Here’s more info from VAUMM:

Sansaburu Kindergarten and parking.
2007-09. Eibar. Gipuzkoa. Spain

Settled down on north and west side, the building opens towards the south and south-east, the most open and furthest direction from the walls, batters and staircases that give shape to the park.

The diagram of arrangement works out in both floors, the entrance from north face of site and from there, the different elements are organized in two arms, hugging the court.

The classrooms are thought to catch the sunrise, within the timetable of the nursery school. The inside of the building is thought to children´s scale. Corridors´ and classrooms´natural light is through the windows at ground level, letting to admire the outside.

The internal cladding colours are warm and alive, and they give the nursery school a ludic character, that goes beyond the interior through a random arrangement of spaces in façade and the use of colour in the balcony towards Sansaburu Street and entrances of building.

The random arrangement of the lamps in the front entrance above the tramex-made closure works as a building lure.
