Kaarelanraitti day care centre, Vantaa

We performed the design of wood structures and building acoustics for a new day care centre and primary school  in Kannelmäki in Helsinki.  This small, wooden learning environment, dubbed ‘the Treehouse’ in the design competition, have space for 210 nursery-school children and 120 first- and second-year pupils. The adaptable and accessible premises can also be used for leisure activities. The new building replaces the old premises, which were built in 1955 and reached the end of their technical service life.

The acoustical solutions of the ceiling and floor materials bring added comfort to the spaces. The wood column and Deltabeam structure enables a high degree of adjustability. Most of the building’s interior walls and ceilings have a wooden surface.
