The project was developed by PALK Architekci architectural studio (authors: Piotr Hardecki, Marta Czarnomska-Siecke, Krzysztof Laniewski-Wollk, Lukasz Stepniak), now cooperating as two architectural offices: Piotr Hardecki Architekt and LWS Architekci.
A primary school with a gymnasium for around 575 pupils was built in a residential area near Warsaw. The building concept was selected in a nationwide architectural competition.The school's architecture fits in with the surrounding buildings. The interiors use natural, non-allergenic finishing materials: linoleum instead of PVC flooring, acoustic suspended ceilings, brick wall cladding in areas exposed to particularly intensive use. Details have been designed to reduce the possibility of potential injury. The colour scheme serves to make it easier for pupils to find their way around the school.
Rainwater from the roofs has been managed on the plot. Recreational glades act as shallow retention basins after rainfall and are used as playgrounds in dry periods. Play equipment set on elevated areas takes the form of 'islands' after heavy rain.
The primary school in Książenice was shown as a model example of a school building in the publication: "A well-designed school. Architectural and functional standards for primary schools and school-pre-school complexes of the City of Warsaw".
