Ronald McDonald’s House has been operating in Krakow-Prokocim (Poland) for over a year now. It is a free hotel for parents of ill children - patients of the nearby University Children’s Hospital.

PRESS GLASS was one of the companies that committed to the construction. To support the initiative, it manufactured and delivered more than 100 high-quality panes.

Currently there are around 300 buildings of this kind worldwide and the hotel in Krakow-Prokocim commissioned in October 2015 is the first such place in Poland.

The Ronald McDonald’s House, which is located very close to the hospital, offers 20 spacious and modern rooms with bathrooms as well as a kitchen, a large dining room and a lounge for parents of young patients.

Parents can be as close as possible to the child in need of support. Close contact of hospitalized children with their parents has a huge impact on the faster recovery and, therefore, a shorter stay in a hospital”, explains the Ronald McDonald Foundation.

The hotel occupying 1400 m² was designed to be as comfortable as possible for its guests. Among other things, numerous glazed areas guarantee the appropriately good access of sunlight to individual rooms.

PRESS GLASS is one of the Partners of the House, i.e. enterprises taking part in its construction.

The unusual challenge for the glazing was that the maisonettes were not able to have windows along the sides. This required the creative use of rooflights and lightwells to provide plenty of natural light.
