The architects of Ateliér K2 studio managed to make the school’s vision of a safe and kind environment with a peaceful atmosphere come to life perfectly. The latest reconstruction of the elementary school in Ďáblice has connected all extensions built in the past into one harmonious form while emphasizing the originally majestic approach to the historic building from the beginning of the 20th century. Do not look for the entrance here, though; it is located on a small school square which has taken on the role of a new public space since its creation. Join the tour guides and walk through the entire school premises, including the dining room, selected classrooms, teachers’ lounges, and libraries. Do not forget to climb up to the roof, where you will find an outdoor botanical classroom.
