Quattro Architecture was engaged to provide design documentation and DA services for a new childcare centre in Penrith, NSW.
The centre will be a new 3-storey building, with the ground floor providing a reception area and parking for parents and staff.
The remaining 2 floors provide: 92 childcare spaces across 5 age groups; outdoor play areas on both levels; kitchen for food preparation; bath and change rooms; store room; and cleaners room.
The site is located adjacent to warehouses on a site bounded by high concrete walls. The daycare centre was designed to be inward looking around a central, north facing courtyard, suspended above ground level. This allows for a fun, secure outside space accessible to all rooms.
