Little Hugo for the nursery in the park

The Jury's assessment: "It is the simplicity that makes this building so powerful. Its position in the urban fabric. Its clear form, organisation, and structure. The reduction to few materials. The use of two striking colours. And it is precisely the red of the shell that creates the effect of the building as if it were an apparition in the park, raising it from pure functionality to a poetic level. Strangely aloof and at the same time very present. The contrasting green on the inside, which conjures up the colour of the leaves on the floor like a reflection on water, creates a strong connection between inside and outside. This is a decidedly successful building, planned down to the last detail - consistently simple, but never simplistic".
