Project title: “Kunsziget, the New Tündérvár (Fairy Castle) 3-Room-Kindergarten – Establishing the 100-Portion-Kitchen"
Project identification number: NYDOP-5.3.1/B-12-2013-0018
Name of the beneficiary: Municipality of Kunsziget
The Municipality of Kunsziget submitted the tender on 18 March 2013 to the MAG – Hungarian Economic Development Center. The tender was supported on 3 June 2013 and the Grant Contract was settled on 3 July 2013.
The basic idea behind the architectural concept of the new Tündérvár Kindergarten with 3 rooms established as part of the project was to give the rooms an emblematic individual architectural appearance, or as separate small buildings, as if creating a ‚small street“. These small individual living spaces, or little ‚fairy gardens‘ are linked with a joint passageway. The sunlight can enter the rooms from the playfully lifted room at roof level and from the upside through a light inlet placed on the roof plane.
The divisible room for speech-language pathology and a supply closet, as well as a bathroom for the staff and an accesible one are situated next to the main entrance. The administration and service blocks are at the corner of the complex, at the corridor of the complex together with the hall. The service part of the building has a basement, which provides space for the machinery of the heating system, and a locker room for the nurses – and a resting place.
The kitchen of the kindergarten has to provide a 300-portion-catering in the long run, ensuring safe food disposal. In the garden of the new kindergarten, a new yard („playground“) – in accordance with the standards was established.
Under the project, the furniture and the equipment of the 3. room, the established kitchen, the technological equipment for the kitchen, and development tools for SNI children, as well as outdoor toys were purchased.
By using an innovative, eco-friendly architectural element (wood chips boiler), its „playful“ familiarization, and using selective waste collection, the environmental friendly education already strengthens at a kindergarten age.
By the complete and complex accessibility of the building the conditions of an integrated material education is based, thus the kindergarten is suitable for receiving more children with special educational needs and more disadvantaged children.
