From the architect. The House of the Early Childhood, located in Mayenne, between the city Centre and the new railway station district, is a single level urban building, thought as asoft and welcoming architecture for children & parents, but also for the nurses.
In this way, the building is based on a domestic and hospitable universe: presence of wood outside but also inside, reception and common spaces user-friendly, roof partially built in double slope, omnipresent natural light, generous vegetation…
The garden (800 m2) is an outside room really private and there are four patios that give rhythm to the common spaces.
This centre welcomes from now on 90 children in 1300 m².
This building is emblematic on environmental plan. It has received from Certivéa, the certificate of conformity to the label for High Energy Performance. Certivéa certifies that it’s in accordance with the BBC level and with the requirements of the Effinergie brand.
