Holzhausen, 27th May 2020 – It’s finally in place: the play and movement space for people with and without disabilities, which was co-financed by ATP.
After planning permission had been received it was possible to start construction of our “Christmas Project 2016” in the autumn of the following year. The facility is located on the site of a former open-air swimming pool in Holzhausen, a village with 800 inhabitants close to Landsberg am Lech, which is also home to one of Bavaria’s 14 Regens Wagner Centers. Due to the current situation the official inauguration was postponed, but the playground recently began welcoming visitors.
These include numerous children, young people, and adults with mental or learning disabilities. These adults, in particular, have a special need for barrier-free design because their physical size often excludes them from normal playgrounds. And, as the space is fundamentally open to everyone, it will also encourage uncoerced encounters.
For over a decade, ATP has made a gift to its employees every Christmas in the shape of its support – financial, or in the form of the design or implementation – of a social project that is chosen, in turns, by its various offices and is usually anchored in their local region. In November 2016, ATP Munich symbolically presented the Regens Wagner Foundations with a check for 20,000 euros.
