The original company a day nursery from the 1970s. ceased to serve its purpose after 1989. After that, the building was rented for commercial purposes without maintenance. The manger is located in the middle of a panel housing estate, they are pleasantly "ingrown" into the garden. The advantage during the reconstruction was the load-bearing reinforced concrete prefabricated skeleton with hidden gutters (MS-OB), enabling a new free layout solution. The new building serves the language school - educational center. In addition to teaching, there is a publishing house and book production.
The single-storey building with a flat roof is divided into three sub-volumes, which form an open entrance atrium. They are newly complemented by the covered terraces of classrooms and offices from the south, which also prevent the interior from overheating in the summer.

The original facade is insulated and plastered with a thin layer of white plaster. The window openings are unified into strip openings with window inserts. The mass of the garage is clad with a wooden ventilated facade. In an effort to simplicity and airiness, the combination of white plaster walls with wooden door frames, glazing and furniture is repeated in the interior.
