Råå Day Care Center by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Built in the borderland between the beach and the old fishing town Råå, the Children’s Day Care Center is a geometric roof wood skin building that is directly connected to the local school.

Architects: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter
Location: Råå, Helsingborg, Sweden

The institution comprises four groups of children, each with its own group room. The four group rooms identify themselves to the facade as the gable of a fisherman’s house.

Inspiration from architect:

The building is shaped as an interpretation of the condensed village structure immersed in a dune. The applied typology is challenged and used to create good light incidence to the children at all times of the year.
