An elementary school in a picturesque and tranquil suburbian town near Warsaw.

The building is embedded in a unique setting in the center of the town – surrounded by freestanding family houses, intimate gardens and an old church. In order to tie in to the existing context, the relatively large object was divided into several smaller ones, with the largest part – the gym hidden at the back.

The building is divided into two parts, each with independent access: for sport and for teaching. The class with the youngest pupils on the ground floor has direct access to a green courtyard. The basement comprises a multimedia room designed for projecting films, holding lectures and staging performances. The school is to be immersed in a copious greenery.
