We created a worthy public space from the park having two columnar oak trees in the front of the primary school. Our goal was to set up a nice modern urban space. The park reflects the main group of the park visitors that are the kids from the school. We laid a big “carpet”, which enables passing through all directions and offers a space for games. We placed three trampolines there, which make lots of fun for the kids during the breaks as well as after the classes are over. We designed with Vojtech Bilisic sculptor atypical benches from the oak wood. The benches are illuminated by LED strips, so they are losing its weight in the night and are “floating” over the space.
We paved the pavements round the park with the “Prague” cobbles and the central part of the park is made from decomposed granite surrounded by the concrete pavement. Two large grass areas were completely reconstructed and are covered by a blue carpet of small bulbous plants in the spring. Both areas have an automatic irrigation system that ensures the best quality of the lawn.
