The elementary school is the dream and desire of all the municipalities associated in the volunteer union of Lošbates, Czech Republic. The architectural design competition is the second step to its creation. The first is the cooperation of municipalities Louňovice, Štíhlice, Babice, Tehovec, Svojetice that created Lošbates. The union originated from the need to meet the statutory duty to provide elementary schooling for children from our communities. The municipalities used to have a guaranteed schooling at the elementary school of Mukařov, but its capacity is no longer enough. And after the decision of the Mukařov council that no construction will be carried out in the area of their school in order to extend the capacity, the surrounding communities have no choice but to build their own school. Unfortunately, during the time of creation of the competition conditions, the Babice municipal councillors decided to withdraw from the union and solve the obligation to ensure compulsory school attendance for their children on their own. The union originally had a volume of about 4000 permanent residents and a school of 3 x 9 classes with a capacity of about 700 children was planned, which is in line with the demographic study prepared for Lošbates in 2017. After Babice left, the union has a volume of less than 3000 inhabitants and the planned school is 2 x 9 classes with a capacity of about 540 pupils.
The construction of the new school is an investment that does not have a similarity in the rich history of our communities. Though we are small villages, it is our desire to build a 21st century school that will allow modern learning and inspire children to study. We want a safe school and a school that will enable community use and will serve all our people for decades. The proposed solution should respect the chosen 2.5 hectares of building land, the surrounding area and the landscape character of the village of Louňovice. The layout of buildings and other structures must be such as to allow future extension of the school to 3 x 9 classes.
The land designated for the construction of the school is located in the municipality of Louňovice by the Kutnohorská road (I/2), approximately 25 km from Prague.
