Timeshare kindergarten Podgorje

Kindergarten Podgorje is a so-called timeshare kindergarten, which emphasizes peer interaction, self-learning and movement. The building has no corridors; there is a large multi-purpose central space, linking all the play rooms. When these are opened, an 85 percent of the building surface becomes a continuous playing space. The kindergarten is energy efficient, with several interior and exterior elements which encourage physical activity, such as an indoor road for walking, running or cycling, which is regulated by special animal-shaped traffic signs.
