the nová ruda kindergarten by petr stolín architects is not an ordinary rectangular space but one that is visually connected to the exterior through large parallel windows, and to different floors through atriums. conceived as a brick building, the kindergarten is actually built with a glass fiber façade on a wooden grid, and enclosed by a steel structure with two walking paths around the main sections that are hidden from the street by another layer of trapezoidal fiberglass.

the children’s activities vary through the height of the building: in the lower part, there is a bed section, the quietest place, while the floor above houses the playroom. here, too, the children have the opportunity to go outside to the terrace and the side galleries which continue behind the façade of the house. they can reach the main outdoor play terrace situated above the dining room.

the skylights of the top classroom bring natural light into the space and to the dining room of the ground floor. the building is sized for two departments of 25 children, an office for four educators, an office for the nursery manager and farmer, a dining room for 30 children and four adults. the design of the functional area of the kindergarten is optimal: food preparation, staff cloakrooms, cleaning room, technical space and storage are all housed under the same roof.

the area that is in between the two main bodies of the kindergarten functions as a terrace and public space, while it is connected to the new parking and exterior wooden paving that is aligned with the axis of the building. the remaining terrain will be used as green space with various play elements required by the program.
