Larger-than-life animal structure actually supports the architecture.

The Giraffe Childcare Center is situated in the Seguin Rives de Seine district in the suburban areas of Paris, France. The most noticeable part of the building is that it features a larger-than-life giraffe sculpture as a support column. From a distance, it looks as if the animal is poking its long neck through the roof.

The 1,450-square-meter building is designed by Hondelatte Laporte Architectes. The childcare center has a total of 80 beds, and three tiers of floors with south-facing playgrounds that are well-connected with the interior space.
