slovenian practice superform has shared with us images of their newly completed project, the ‘kindergarten cerkvenjak’ in a wooded peaceful village slovenia. the design originated from the desire to create a structure that would maximize the learning experience for the children. aesthetically playful with an irregular footprint and a sawtooth section, bright orange walls and contorted windows and columns, the building is arranged with wings that stretch out onto the site creating small courtyards and classrooms that open up to exterior play areas. full glass walls provide constant natural light and views towards the surrounding trees which are represented in the project by the thick timber posts that hold up the overhanging roofs sheltering the outdoor spaces immediately outside of the various halls. a central hallway of bright colors and further allusions to the angled elements within and around the structure connect all the classes.
