In 2022 BJERG won a recognized award for the kindergarten in Podkowa to the Green Building Award in Poland. The building is recognized for its sustainable design.
We have used the passive house principles, and the kindergarten is, among other things, characterized by having solar cells, passive solar shading from the windows, heat recovery and a well-thought-out structure that is optimized to utilize solar energy. The robust facade is made of wood and fits in the surrounding forest landscape. In the middle is the heart of the kindergarten: a green atrium. The kindergarten is 1452 m² and includes 7 group rooms.
In the design choices and furnishings, we have focused on creating space for play, community and nature. The needs of both the children and the employees are met.
