The design for this childcare and community hub is one which has the building as a canvas and children the colour. The design ensures that not only best practice early childhood learning opportunities are provided for, but also that they are housed in a cutting edge example of modern sustainable design. Passive design principals, solar arrays and grey water recycling are but a few of the environmental initiatives used in the design.
The building is formed and focused around a mature eucalyptus cinerea, anchoring the nature play playground and childcare rooms. Native vegetation and soft natural building materials are used through out the landscape and built form.
