- school playground area extension
- In order to extend the playground area of the Prins Dries kindergarden school in Antwerp, a triangular canopy was added to the playground. The shape contrasts with the existing geometry and participate to propose a new ludic and open level. The triangular form was implemented in order to preserve the sun and light exposure of the surrounding classrooms.[...]
The structure has been designed in order to generate an economic and simple system. The canopy consists of a 12cm section concrete floor placed on exactly 9 steel columns. The columns are organised in a 2m/2m pattern, redefining the spatial organisation of the school’s playground. The floor finish participates to the concrete waterproofing and bring a colouring touch on the project. A white coated steel railing completes it. Through this simple intervention, the school is provided with both an additional recreational space and a covered outside area.
