This project is a new school building and environment for an existing primary school on a narrow building site. The aim of Areal Architecten was to create an open school with a generous message to the neighbourhood and one of the important elements of the design was the search for an appropriate balance between built and open space.

The kindergarten aims to create a small village setting for children that breaks away from the traditional, large scale institutional daycare environment. The small scale village atmosphere at Frederiksvej Kindergarten is achieved by dividing the building into 11 small houses joint together with different orientation. The various play programs in the kindergarten are centered around two winter gardens that resulted in these small, individualized spaces where children can establish their own play niches within the building.

The project corresponds to the reconstruction of a heritage building. It is part of the educational infrastructure from Protectora de la Infancia in the town of Puente Alto, Santiago, that welcomes vulnerable minors in extreme poverty.

Replacing an old school building which has been severely damaged and, consequently, demolished following the disastrous 2008 Sichuan earthquake, this austere, labyrinthine XiaoQuan Elementary School has been realised by a Beijing-based practice Trace Architecture Office (TAO).
