latvian architectural practice ARHIS has submitted a competition proposal for a kindergarten to be
located in riga, latvia. classroom spaces wrap around a large park providing children with a constant
visual and physical connection to nature. subdivided for different learning and play activities for children
of various ages, the green space also connects to the nearby urban park system, allowing it to be opened
and closed to maintain safety for children.
a swimming pool, assembly hall and sports facility are placed along an operable glass facade at
the boundary of the exterior courtyard generating views of the vegetation and dynamic environment.
the sizes of different classroom volumes are adjusted and personalized to accommodate students
of different age levels and enhance the learning process.
