In 1925, our building and garden were opened by King Haakon VII during Stavanger's 800th anniversary. In 2025, our building will be 100 years old.

Towards the 100th anniversary, we are working on a restoration and reinterpretation of the garden in 1925. The project is an official part of Stavanger's city anniversary in 2025, and has received funds from The City of Stavanger, Sparebankstiftelsen SR-Bank, Sparebanken Vest and Stiftelsen Sophies Minde. We are currently working to find additional contributions, so that the project can be completed by 2025.

The garden will form a safe frame around the building, making it possible to use it for events and educational activities. The project includes a permanent ramp to our main entrance, so that everyone has an equal entrance to the building.

With the upgrade of the garden, we want to create a beautiful and safe outdoors space for children and young people, neighbors and visitors, and Stavanger's residents.

We would like to thank The City of Stavanger, Sparebankstiftelsen SR-bank, Sparebanken Vest and Stiftelsen Sophies Minde for their invaluable support to this project.
