the project by CREA arquitectos saw the careful renovation of existing buildings to create a modern school community and the new barbosa du bocage kindergarden. the architectural intervention reorders the relationship between the building and the street, and shapes a new outdoor playground space.

the project also focuses on the integration of natural light throughout all the spaces. east facing rooms gain daylight in the morning, while a new multipurpose courtyard allows light to penetrate deep into the floor plan. this ochre-colored outdoor playground becomes a hub of activity for the children, facilitating play and social interaction, and framed by treetops to the south to provide plenty of shade in the hot summer months.
