It’s a design that creates rooms with differing aspects, which are emphasised by generously sized windows. The four wings of the building, each offset by a third of a storey and interlocking with one another, reduce perceptions of the building's size. The central staircase, which features ramps, is a playful element and a key piece in the interior space. A separate entrance at the top of the plot helps ensure unfettered access to the childcare centre, while exposed concrete inside and out enables the building to blend into the topography.
