Babilou Daycare Center
Big spaces for the little ones
The children of workers at the Renault car factory in France are attending a day care centre which is built with Honka's non-settling log structure. The day care centre for 60 children, located in the town of Guyancourt, 42 km from Paris, is open for the children of Renault car factory employees.
The architecture of the modern log building is diverse, inspiring and expressive. As a renewable natural resource, logs processed from Finnish forests also met their criteria for ecologically sustainable construction.
The use of large sliding doors would not have been possible using a traditional log structure. Honka resolved the issue with its non-settling structure.
The Honka Fusion log construction is non-settling and allows a modern architectural solution: the combination of different materials such as wood cladding, stone, brick or plastering on a massive log frame, preserving the natural ability of the logs to breathe.
