Located in the center of the village of Bruckberg, Germany, the four-group children’s house is built in the immediate vicinity of the existing school. Designed by Goldbrunner & Hrycyk Architekten, House for Children is a 2019 project that also includes a compact, square new building as a passive house designed in solid wood construction.
In the center of the village of Bruckberg, the four-group children’s house is built around the existing school. Together with the schoolhouse, this project also forms a traffic-free space between the town hall and the church for the children as a meeting place.
On the ground floor, there are two nursery groups while the pupils from the primary school can use the central main staircase to reach the two after-school care groups on the upper floor. Both units can be used of each other independently thanks to the common foyer of the building.
As a passive house, the compact, square new building is built in solid wood construction with a stairwell and the partial basement in the reinforced concrete. The move in this project is planned in 2019 / 2020 where the beginning of the school year is started.
