A modular and nomadic wooden nursery

A modular and nomadic wooden nursery

5 Feb 2020 News

Located the Luxembourg Gardens of Paris, this nursery by Djuric Tardio Architectes is completely dismountable and re-constructible. Made of self-bearing modules, the assemblages are borrowed from traditional Japanese systems. The interior layout and utilities are also modular. The wooden structural envelope is prefabricated in a workshop.

Housing a 48 cradle nursery, the building provides temporary accommodation for children when their usual child care establishments are, for instance, undergoing works. The building is thus designed to be disassembled, moved and reassembled. Currently, in the 6th arrondissement of Paris for the next two years, it will eventually be relocated to the 13th arrondissement.

The current site features a number of trees with roots that cannot withstand damage from construction.  Furthermore, the site is located above quarries at a depth of 15m below, which threatens the stability of the ground and trees above. The temporary nature of this construction and the use of micro piles leaves the sensitive site undisturbed. It will be restored to its initial state in 2 years’ time.
