Mt Annan Childcare
This childcare project is on a greenfield site at Mount Annan. The centre has been designed by using a modularised system of fabrication that yielded an economical and efficient built form – a cost effective design solution was developed that meant 70% of the structure could be fabricated off site and then quickly and efficiently erected to meet a quick construction time frame.
Dominant bright colours, usually associated with institutional childcare accommodation, were avoided in preference to a palette of natural, honest materials and finishes to create a familiar residential feel.
Pop-up clerestory windows allowing sunshine to penetrate deep into the playrooms and primary shapes and platonic forms in the building elements give opportunities for imagination and education.
