Jardín Spanish Immersion Academy – Eden Prairie
The Jardín Spanish Immersion Day Care & Preschool believes in using a holistic approach to nurture children and takes pride in their commitment to supporting bicultural communities throughout the Twin Cities. To help further this mission, CNH Architects designed their new facility to express the creativity and culture inherent in Jardín program. The one story building has 8600 square feet and a prominent two story glass atrium entry. The glass atrium was designed to exert a strong presence on the site, increase visibility of the facility from the highway and to create an identity for future Jardín facilities.
The space is organized around the children’s gym room and windows allow parents to see their children play while touring the facility. Access to daylight and the use of cleanable and durable materials was a priority in the design of the classrooms.
