In Paris, Even the Nursery Schools are Intimidatingly Chic

Modeled to look like a pleated curtain gently ruffling in the breeze (lovely, yes?) the utterly Parisian Epée de Bois nursery school got a bright, modern extension at the hands of local firm H20 Architects. Built to fit into a narrow courtyard in the middle of the city, the new wing eschews bright, primary school colors in the name of an airy white, with a row of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and fenced in, lacquered play areas.

Though impossible to tell from the outside, the space actually spans three floors, with the main school area on the first floor, a private basement level, and a rooftop terrace (presumably for the very chic parents,) above. Find the floor-plans and a few more photos, this way.
