Kadarka Street Kindergarten, Budapest

Text: Szilvia Molnár
Architecture and photos: György Dénes

At the beginning of the year, the sunny, modern Kadarka Street Kindergarten was handed over 100 children and 20 kindergarten workers in the garden-town part of the former Pesthidegkút called Széphalom. Not only did the area thrive with a new institution building, but also with real architectural quality. In the investment, the customer defined the design of a building with increased accessibility for 100 children and the use of renewable energy sources. Increased accessibility was also a key moment in the planning, as in this kindergarten the so-called they follow an inclusive method of education, ie. the needs of children with special educational needs, such as those with some kind of disability, must also be met.
