Being a kid and even a teenager is definitely a special feeling, a feeling of being without any worries. The enthusiasm for our children to have better conditions for education, where they want with desire to go to campus, has been the main motive to create a positive and energetic environment. The school now except teaching is a game, entertainment and anything else, factors that make the learning more attractive.

 

 

Multi-functional space where multipurposes are developed in one place, natural lighting in each space, variety of colors and incorporating of green in the interior are some of the components that characterize the new campus of the American School of Kosovo.

The kindergarten is characterized by the central gallery, which connects all the surrounding spaces together with the internal atrium, within which grows a multi-year olive. This tree impresses that it will be there and will be conveyed by generation and generation! Olive knows all the pupils; it knows which of them will be the leaders of the future! From time to time, it gives the impression of a grandfather who expresses love from outside. Lighting that comes from above adds artistic value to the gallery and creates space for many functions, in one word creates life.

About the authors

MADEN GROUP

For the purpose of architecture in Kosovo, a unique office that gives comfort, embraces society and works creatively, we decided in 2009 to open Maden Group.

In our projects we always strive to integrate new elements, in step with the achievements of today’s technology and materials, always giving them different dimensions and colors to our jobs but without losing their identity.

In order to give me another job to do, occasionally trying to avoid monotony and create a creative environment, and move the office to different environments.

For us, a good and social environment always results in successful work.
