Open spaces in schools are essential for socialisation, creative stimulation and children’s learning. It is essential that they be safe and healthy places, with heterogeneous living and playing spaces, and with the presence of trees and vegetation. Playgrounds and other common areas such as school entrances are places where pupils learn to interact, share and respect the habitat.

Prat Ajedrez provides an accessible meeting place and recognises the social importance of play in the public space, encouraging playful, diverse and inclusive environments.
We participated in Barcelona Design Week with Canvas, an artistic installation by the muralist Anna Ovni, who created a pictorial work evoking internal landscapes and reflections on the environment through the emblematic Lungo Mare and Petra collection, furniture with organic forms inspired by nature, becoming meeting points, playgrounds and places to come together for the people who live there.
