As an expected solution, the connection from the Kutnohorska I/2 road is maintained to vertical Soubezna street which is to be in between buildings 368 and 313.
A turning lane in the middle of the existing lanes is provided between the Entry Square and the new vertical Soubezna street by widening the road along as needed and then narrowed down to existing two way lane after the need is provided for both ways. This new vertical Soubezna street sustains the drop-off area with the intersection of the south-east side of the plot for school buses and personal parent stopovers before and after school hours.
Car parking for the staff is accommodated along the south part of the plot with a one way road. This lane is also to be used as a service road for food and waste trucks, however their working hours should be arranged before or after school, to make sure that they do not intersect with the education hours and heavy hours of traffic. This lane also goes left to the west side and creates a third drop-off area for side entrance of outdoor sports facilities and takes precautions for emergency situations. Finally it leads to the two way Forest road which leads either to the Soubezna street or East Square Entrance, creating a major loop.
The entrance for visitors, and so the car parking area, is separated from the education area to make sure that the teaching process is not interrupted. This part of the project is also perceived as a part of the “Neighbourhood Path” project combining with the Forest.
Pedestrian sidewalks go wider when leading to school entrance, also providing bicycle lanes going around the school. Main pedestrian sidewalk accompany the Kutnohorska road that lead to Soubezna street, providing a safer and comfortable walk from the new bus stop. Also the horizontal Soubezna street is widened to the west entrance ending with a zebra crossing.
ARCHITECTURAL AND PUBLIC SPACES SOLUTION
Architectural spaces are created not solely from naive imagination but after hard negotiations with restrictions of the existing conditions of the territory, the surrounding data and the requirements and dreams of the users which make outline the basis contribution of the design parameters.
In that manner, orientation of the traffic, the forest safety zone, urban concept of land-use, housing units around the plot, the level change from south to north, environmental and weather conditions, separate operational uses of public functions and educational functions as well as their connections and so on, designate the essentials of the project.
