City of Sydney Childcare
Country / Gadigal
A new 100 place childcare facility nestles into its parkland setting, recalling the site’s industrial past.
Proposal / 2013
Designed to piggyback on existing services in Sydney Park, this new Childcare facility is collocated with existing parking and play facilities. Nestled into an existing hill, the facility references the brick manufacturing history of the site, and arranges itself like a fallen chimney in the landscape.
The section is an exploration of child and adult scale, designed for cosy nooks and moments of expansive sky view and wonder. Careful planning arrangement aligns with operational and staffing goals, pre-empting lines of site and supervision across different age groups.
