What is the best environment to educate children? This was the question for the architects from the Atelier SAD when they received a commission for the Czech-English Duhovka Elementary School. The concept was profoundly influenced by the school’s philosophy based on the educational methods of Maria Montessori. Classrooms are distinguished by colours, playful architectural details and tailored workshop furniture, all designed for the greatest possible satisfaction of both the small pupils and the teachers.
