The gorgeous Norwegian landscape and the pure minds of impressionable children are catered to in the Fagerborg Kindergarten by RRA. The elementary school is situated within a park in the city of Oslo and takes on a truly organic aesthetic thanks to the natural wood employed in its construction.

Rich timber beams clad the exterior with a vertical grain and knot pattern speckled with square windows. The underside of one facade tapers in, pulling the massive structure to a narrow base from which opens an entrance.

The educational institution for youngsters is composed of four classroom areas that exist as impressive solid structures. Meeting the heritage guidelines in a neighborhood full of early 20th-century homes, the Fagerborg Kindergarten by RRA (Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter) embodies a distinctively different contemporary form, further explored in the bright and colorful spaces within.
