Located in Perthes, France, a long run of timber-clad gabled forms designed by Paris-based Tracks Architectes is the home for a new kindergarten, “La Ruche”, or “The Beehive”.
The new buildings are located in the historic village of Perthes-en-Gatinais, part of the Gatinais Regional Natural Park or PNRGF. As a result, the project had high environmental ambitions from the outset, and construction was completed in 10 months to minimise disturbance.
