The building has a timber frame made of Kerto and utilizes breathing wall construction with Warmcel re-cycled newsprint insulation. The plan is conceived as a main space surrounded by ‘pockets’ at a scale appropriate to young children. A subsidiary space can be opened up to facilitate larger meetings of full sized people.
