The basic form of the building are 4 variable modules and 1 main building. It allows operation of four group for 100 children with the possibility of extension and change the form of the building.

The project involves the construction of identical variable modules which can be connected to each other. The elevation of the building was designed as a kind of “skin” for containers. Facade cladding panels fills the inner side of elevation.

The whole facade is ejected from the structure, giving an interesting, minimalist character of the building. Modernist form with its originality and simplicity encouraged to use.
