Future preschoolers in Český Brod can look forward to a new kindergarten
We have designed a new kindergarten in the small Bohemian town of Český Brod which is centred on developing childrens creativity in a modern, friendly educational environment. The new Kollárova kindergarten which is designed to be carbon neutral will consist of three buildings interconnected by a glass hall topped with a green roof. The hall is a meeting place for children and parents and offers a spacious area for hosting workshops, concerts and performances which opens onto a large garden. The hall connects to imaginative interior spaces consisting of classrooms, play areas, washrooms, a dining room and staff rooms on both levels. Easy accessibility and navigation was important in the design, and access to the second floor is provided by a glass barrier-free elevator and a central staircase. Each of the three buildings has a separate outdoor staircase connecting the classrooms on the second floor with the garden. The facades are clad with wooden slats finished with an accent of colored lining which provides a playful edge to the architecture.
Alexandr Verner, one of the architects leading the project said: "The glass hall is the focal point for the scheme which connects to a fairytale garden linking the various areas of the site; where children can find their way through a labyrinth, run through water mist, walk over a suspension bridge, look out of a fortress sculpture, and play on the climbing frames. The garden will feature colourful landscaping and a range of new trees, connecting and framing outdoor classrooms, workshops, a sports field and area where children can learn to grow fruit and vegetables”.
Our studio is currently preparing a detailed study of the new kindergarten design by which they are aiming to complete the documentation required to apply for the building permit early this year.
