    • Broad windows facing the Saxtorphsvej Integrated Daycare Center’s outdoor play area stretch lower to the ground, comfortably accommodating the eye-level gaze of a four year old. Playful design touches like skewed rooflines and irregularly placed windows reflect the wandering sense of childhood creativity, defining a space purpose-built for youth. Brightly lit play areas encourage socialization and cooperative play between students, while cozy corner niches make space for quiet connections. Arranged as a network of classrooms, play areas and workshops focused around a central common area, the Saxtorphsvej Integrated Daycare Center exemplifies how youth-focused architecture can foster a communal, creative space for children.
