MESTRAL SCHOOL

A kindergarten that protects itself from the very strong Mestral wind, making it an ally, filtering it through the ceramic skin and the structural breeze and light CLT cabins. The building has a large communal inner courtyard where children can be sheltered and play on windy days. In the existing courtyard to the east, protected from the Mestral by the new building, a small forest will provide shade and create a habitat for play and adventure, with timber huts, some built by local carpenters, others self-built by children.
