Make the park penetrate into the heart of this program to offer it spaces of breath and so to the children a natural environment in which they can bloom completely, it is the concept which motivates this project. The arrangement of the program around a patio-garden and around two cocoon-courtyards forms then by the will of a maximum natural lighting and outer spaces protected from the wind. The wood, the major material in this project and with environmental qualities, is then evident and strengthens the concept. Cocoon-courtyards, places of conviviality and sharing, also allow keeping certain independence for the different parts some of the others, so that the children can find more intimate places within these.
