Asilo Intraziendale ENI - San Donato Milanese
Location: San Donato Milanese
Architecture and design: Tullio Zini
Architect: Lapis Architetture educational consultants Reggio Children
The architectural design works hand in hand with the service's educational objectives. The space (2,800 square metres and 3,000 square metres of outdoor space), with its architecture, furnishings, colours, lighting, and acoustics, aims to encourage children and their different skills. The project also took into account environmental sustainability and is class A certified. The space utilizes photovoltaic and solar panels and eco-compatible materials, as well as the recovery of rainwater. For the lighting, we used the R120 I-PIPEDI ceiling version with the 42W GX24 fluorescent lamp. A special application was made to some fixtures: an LED strip at the top of the unit that emits a blue light and is used as a night-light in the rooms where the children take their afternoon naps.
