Family Centre Mala ulica

Mateja Panter, Špela Kuhar / 2013
LOCATION: Prečna 7, 1000 Ljubljana

This family centre, which is the first of its kind in Slovenia, is an innovation in content, as well as design. The rich reconstructed facade of the 1900s building, formerly a public bath, welcomes the visitors in a fairytale world. All the spaces, their equipment and details, are an invitation to pre-school children to enter a world of fantasy and discovery. The central space is divided into several different play corners and a parents’ room. The first floor features block games, there is a library on the top floor and toilets in the basement.
