Project description: The kindergarten project included the implementation of two full kindergarten units with nodes sanitary facilities and cloakrooms with an administrative, kitchen, and technical part and a connection with an existing school.
It is the first time in Krakow and one of the first in Poland where modular kindergarten facilities have been fully realized in steel frame technology.
Thanks to this application, from the beginning of the design process until the building was commissioned and handed over for use, only three months passed.
”Attempts were made to create an architecture of simplicity as a minimalist background for colorful and expressive preschool life and respect to the existing values,” says the architect.
The whole idea of the building is based on forming architecture as a backdrop for preschool events while continuing to form a continuation of the existing architecture.
