MT BARKER S.A.
This childcare centre was designed to cater for forty 0-6 year olds. It was a radical departure from standard design of child care centres at the time with an open kitchen placed in the centre to offer a homely, interactive ‘heart’.
The entry and craft room are located either side of the central kitchen within the open plan corridor, with three playrooms radiating to the north. Skylights draw northern sun into the activity spaces.
A radiating geometry, colour and daylight are used to create a stimulating environment appropriate for young children.
