In modern cultural institutions, public spaces play no less important role than the building itself: there is also intensive communication and networking - through play, food or informal communication. In this project, it was important to create all conditions for visitors to the Jewish Cultural Center, to improve the existing landscape, emphasizing its unique features. We used colors and textures which are typical for the cultural code of the place, as well as references to history.
The park is formed around the building of the Jewish center. The arc-shaped pergola emphasizes the existing pedestrian route, zoning the space and creating secluded places. The masonry of the pergola wall is made of limestone blocks with relief patterns. Small recreation areas are combined into large pavillions under a canopy. The playground at the synagogue is not just a territory for outdoor games, but also coul be a place to get acquainted with biblical stories. The concept of the Noah’s Ark playground was born as a result of such reflections.
