The feminine and soft parabolic barrel vault is the main feature of this Kindergarden which is situated amid rectangular shaped generated housing scheme.

The building consists of a cluster of well proportioned units of different sizes and heights with cosy interior courtyards as well as interstitial spaces which create a transitional interface with the external gardens.

Controlling daylight’s intensity and anti-glare measures like translucent light in sky monitors are integrated with barrel vaults as well as mashrabia (lattice) screens and stained glass create a magical and poetic atmosphere for the children.tradi
