Leipuri day care centre is located next to the church in Myllypuro, 1960s suburb of Helsinki.

The main façade is curved and plastered white. The roof follows a propeller form. A long “nose” leads to the second floor from an artificial hill. A wooden façade opens to the south and the the centre´s own playgrounds.

Joachim Sederholm and Karin Widnäs have created artworks for the building.
