Kinder­garten in Podkowa

AWARD-WINNING SUSTAINABLE BUILDING

Where:

Podkowa Leśna

Builder:

Podkowa Leśna Kommune

In 2022, we won a recognized award for the kindergarten for the Green Building Award in Poland. The building is praised 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 with the surrounding forest landscape. In the middle is the heart of the kindergarten: a green atrium.

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.
