Kindergarten Terenten
Terenten / Terento - first prize
Terenten is a mountain village in South Tyrol, a border region defined by three cultures: the German, the Italian and the Ladin ones. The new building is a mediator between these worlds, starting from the context but transcending it. The kindergarten is emerging from the ground, on one side a clear building, on the other side already integral part of the landscape. It is related to the scale of the surrounding village, and takes the perspective of the children into account. The kindergarten combines the elemental logic of the form with the complexity of its inner and outer space sequences. The building uses traditional architectural elements and translates them into a contemporary form.
