Two kindergartens were designed for the local community of Liederbach.

A small solitaire structure was planned for Akazienweg in a setting of new residential buildings.  The two-storey timber-frame nursery comprised group rooms with a gallery surrounding a central play area, facing south and east to the kindergarten’s open areas.  The curved contour, roofscape and external design of the stairwell provide the three-dimensional design quality required by the solitaire building.

On Wachenheimer Strasse, by contrast, a corner building was designed which forms a single spatial entity with the existing school complex and sports hall and encloses an intimate courtyard for use by the kindergarten children.  It has the advantage of masking the amorphous 1970s sports hall.
