CHILD DAY CARE CENTRE in Brussel, Belgium by BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Article source: BUROBILL & ZAmpone architectuur

This Child Day Care Center will house 68 children in the center of Brussels. There is limited space available in this building block that also hosts 3 schools, a music academy, after-school care & many more organizations to guide children from the day they enter into Day Care till the day leave school at the age of 18. This project is situated on the first floor of an existing building block. In order to get on this floor there is a concrete path to guide children and parents to the entrance. The same vocabulary of concrete curves is repeated in the terrace on the second floor that serves as external playground for the 68 children of the Day Care Center. In order to limit the weight of the concrete construction a system of modulation of supporting beams of the concrete terrace was designed. This project has been awarded the price of sustainable exemplary building project of the city of Brussels – year 2013 because it is designed to be a very low energy consuming renovation/extension of an existing building.

Early Childhood Center in Autun, France by TECTONIQUES

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Article source: TECTONIQUES

The Early Childhood Center in Autun is something of an architectural exception in terms of the production of the agency Tectoniques. A single-storey right-angle building, topped off with a broad, iridescent, reflective cap, it is a surprising presence in the surrounding environment and frames, in a playful and joyful manner, an urban landscape which itself is poorly established.

Quezon daycenter in Philippines by Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

Friday, October 24th, 2014

Article source: Yuusuke Karasawa Architects

This facility is a day care center planned in the city of Quezon, located north-east of Manila, Philippines. The Philippine day care center, while its main function is a kindergarten/nursery, it also provides lodgings for the socially vulnerable and serves as a town community center. By having multiple functions, the day care center is more than just a nursery—it is a ”multi-purpose housing” made available for the city’s residents. It is a place where neighbors communicate with each other, a place of life and activities for the children and people without family. There, what is being contemplated is the proper way of a public “housing” that also provides communal functionalism.

Danish architects COBE have completed a new daycare center in Copenhagen with curved corners, lush roof gardens and a special brick facade that gives the building a warm modern feel and at the same time reflects its historic surroundings.

Five small houses with a unique brick cladding and green roofs and roof gardens create the framework for Copenhagen’s new kindergarten. The kindergarten opened its doors in July 2014 and is the result of a competition held in 2012 won by Danish architects COBE in collaboration with PK3 landscape architects and D.A.I. engineers.

Maritime Center Historic Rehabilitation by Hamilton + Aitken Architects

Thursday, May 22nd, 2014

Article source: Hamilton + Aitken Architects

The Maritime Center was one of two childcare centers built specifically to accommodate mothers working in the nearby Richmond shipyards during World War II. Henry J. Kaiser acquired funding from the Maritime Commission under the Lanham Act to build these centers for his workers (the famous Rosie the Riveters), making the Maritime Center one of the first federally-funded childcare centers in the United States. Built as a temporary structure to fulfill a wartime need, the center remained in continuous operation for over 50 years.
