The project

The main focus of our initiative is the "Sharena Fabrika" project.

In its various stages, the project plans for the restoration and reconstruction of some of the iconic buildings in the village of Golyama Zhelyazna, such as the old school, the bakery, and the bathhouse. As a result of implementing the project, an international professional campus and a meeting place for people interested in culinary arts and traditional crafts will be built.

The main pillars upon which the idea of an international educational center rests will be Culinary Arts (Culinary School) and Crafts (School for Traditional Crafts).

Our goal is to create an inspiring and creative space, promoting the development and dissemination of various traditional crafts and culinary skills, focusing on vocational training for individuals who have completed secondary education.

The plan

Our plan includes the reconstruction of the old school and several iconic village buildings such as the bakery and the bathhouse. Our desire is to restore them while preserving their architecture and spirit.

In the process of implementing the plan, we have involved a team of designers and architects, energy efficiency and heating experts, as well as geologists who have conducted surveys and studies of the terrain and buildings. So far, we have completely renovated all systems and installations, introducing new and modern technologies to make the spaces energy-efficient and sustainable.

Simultaneously, we are collaborating with culinary experts, craft specialists, and technical experts to develop modern technological plans for equipping each room and the common areas in the campus.
