In order to blend in with the scale of the village, the mass of these buildings is concealed. The garage and gymnasium are buried, though skylights provide generous and uniform daylight. The new kindergarten and nursery school will be built above the sunken garage and gym, their masses reduced by half at the upper level, providing additional outdoor space. From the street, the nursery appears as a continuation of the street wall, which in itself mirrors that of the cemetery down the street. Framed by the two-storey facades of the new school buildings, the forecourt at the north end of the site connects the parking and drop-off area with the busy traffic zone to the east. The court serves as the entrance to the underground car park, a dedicated drop-off and a secondary pedestrian entrance to the gym.
