Nord builds a ‘city’ for kids
It will be the largest daycare centre in Denmark
Danish practices Cobe and Nord Architects have collaborated to design a Kids’ City in Copenhagen.
The Prinsessgade Kindergarden and Youth Club was won through a competition this year and is expected to be completed by the end of 2014.
The site, a triangular plot in the Christianshavn borough of the Danish capital, is wedged between the urban block of Prinsessegade and the homegrown Christiania Free Town.
The 4,200 sq m daycare centre is designed to be cluster of small and varied buildings, grouped around two central streets. The Kids’ City has different neighborhoods, houses, public spaces, squares and parks, and even, a city hall, a fire station, a restaurant, a stadium, and a factory.
The kindegarten will host 618 children up to the age of 18.
