Constructora Calaf begins the construction of the new Municipal Nursery El Escorial on the ground floor of a building between the streets Travessera de Dalt and Calle Escorial in the Gracia district of Barcelona.
The nursery is pioneer in its methodology since it is inclusive, ie, all spaces will be ready to be used by children with and without special needs, having a special space for children with disabilities. It is pioneer since there is no precedent of a similar inclusive educational system nationwide.
Works will include the development of a playground within the interior of the block.
The nursery will have an open layout groundfloor space of 608 m² and an outdoor playground space of 227m².
Promoter: BARCELONA EDUCATION CONSORTIUM
Designer: Sergi Salvador Carreño, Architect
