ARCHIKON // VIZAFOGÓ KINDERGARTEN

 

The kindergarten is located close to the river Danube, in the northern part of Budapest, surrounded by ten-storey block of flats. While preserving the existing two-storey, panel kindergarten building of the 1980s, the modernisation and expansion has given the kindergarten a new and integral identity. Expanding the existing narrow corridor more spacious areas were created. The group rooms were extended towards the garden completed with a two-storey, covered, wooden outdoor playground in front. You can use the stairs or slide down to the courtyard from the upper level. The wooden covering of the façade opens up around the terrace and counterpoints the mood of the rigid residential neighbourhood.

Curator's opinion


"As a parent, I consider it very important for educators to be given much greater recognition in Hungary, so that the future generation will be educated by excellent teachers in a worthy environment. And if there are good practices, cool examples, they’re worth highlighting. During the rebuild of the Vizafogó Nursery School, the architects of the Archikon created a super space for the kids to explore the world. In such an environment, playing is definitely more fun, dreams are more beautiful and maybe even the vegetable is tastier.

Children-Parents-Educators and professional, empathetic experts thinking together, collaborating, following good examples and supporting decision makers. – that’s all that is needed! This responsibility, attention, and care should be extended to the level of society, where everyone wants to be proud of the result." Tibor Remete, SUPER CHANNEL
