Creators Early Childhood Centre, Hamilton faces a beautiful grove of mature protected oak trees. The district plan rules state that no centre is to be larger than 250m², so we split the centre into two smaller blocks, one housing preschool and the other the under twos. These are joined by a glazed atrium space, giving the visual impression of two smaller centres whilst providing continuity internally.
The design of your new centre directly impacts on the learning experience of your children and the first impression for new clients. Every inch of space is important in optimising your centre for the specific needs of your children. The problem is that not every architect or designer knows the ins and outs of childcare specific design.
