In 2010, OBERMEYER won the architecture competition to convert and renovate the ‘Shedhalle’ listed industrial structure, part of the former cotton spinning mill, the ‘Alte Baumwolle Flöha’. The intention here is to create the ‘Flöha Village for Children’ [Kinderdorf Flöha]. The child daycare centre opened in 2014 now offers 360 spaces, making it the largest of its kind in Saxony.

Inside the historical main hall, a two-storey structure was erected in a brick construction with steel-reinforced concrete ceilings with lightwells and open playtime courtyards between the buildings.
