Five Kindergartens, Schaffhausen (CH)

In autumn 2003 the nursery in Kesselstrasse in Schaffhausen was rebuilt in a new shape, but like the preceding building in wood construction and handed over as destined as the first of five council renovation projects. The four other nurseries are realised successively to 2007, also using the same modular Steko wood construction system.
The architectural office Reich + Bächtold with Vögeli AG won the competition for the development of the nurseries in Schaffhausen. With the help of Josef Kolb AG an outstanding wood construction concept has been developed. The buildings were nearly exclusively erected using wood from the surrounding woodlands.
...and we are proud to take the children to the woodlands to explain to them: "your nursery building grew here"
