National municipal elementary school
science and education
M. R. Štefánika 5, 7, Malacky
This elementary school is the best example of functionalist architecture in town. It is generously set on a U-shape layout, with an elevated corner section and a constructivist portico highlighting the main entrance to the building. The layout is double-aisled - classrooms are oriented to the park, corridors to the courtyard. Common staircase is situated at the centre of this two-storey compact structure. A mansion for the school director with two additional teacher residential units are located nearby within the school property. Both buildings are work of the then-young architect Juraj Chorvat, who managed to establish himself through these designs as an apt modern architect. Currently the building serves as an elementary school.
