The kindergarten is developed in one floor, around a courtyard. . The solution is defined by the resolution of a set of volumetric and space relations, which is established between the emptiness of the central courtyard and the volumes that structure the program of the construction. The considered volumes designate the presence of the building in the city establishing the transition of scale to the urban centre of Alcanena.
