This is a project by Hans Mesnaritsch and it is located at Graz, Austria. Project's program: Day care center. There are six images for Day Care Center at Technical University Graz.
The detached, east-west facing facility is a two-story building, located on the campus “Inffeldgruende” of the Technical University Graz. It houses a nursery (four groups) and a kindergarten (two groups) for the children of the employees of the Technical University as well as a ‘drop-in’ group for the children of students.
The generous windows in the rooms of the playgroups allow for a lot of daylight on the inside. Terraces, located directly in front of them, act as spatial outdoor extension. On the inside, openings between group rooms and the central hallway generate a line of sight and support the contact between the different groups.
Internal cores include sanitary facilities and supply units. These cores are covered with a colorful pattern; windows connect them to the hallways.
The ample, wood-covered terrace on the first floor compensates for a deficit of playing areas on the ground and offers a diverse quality of outside playing areas.
