Conceived as a Passivhaus, the kindergarden is situated in a row of existing and future educational and sports facilities. Three building wings reaching out into the landscape are connected by a central hall. From here the crèche on the ground floor and the nursery on the first floor, both having their own entrances, can be accessed. The group rooms are open to the landscape and have direct access to the garden via a loggia. The exterior stairways serve as escape routes.

The third wing contains a cafeteria, multipurpose rooms, studios, a spa and the administration.
Two satellite buildings contain a combined heat and power station and outdoor play equipment. Deliveries are made via the utility yard to the north.
