Location: Flat Bush
Size / Capacity: 80
Client: BestStart Educare
Architect: Ross Bryant
This Best-Start Educare centre is located in the up-and-coming suburb of Flat Bush and constructed facing north over 2 large sites, has a very non-imposing but elevated feel to it. Its privileged location and smart design allow the building to receive a lot of natural light, and the quality building materials used makes the building thermally efficient.
Clad in Vertical cedar Shiplap W/B and Titan, it fits in well with the surrounding buildings but still has the "Wow" factor when approached from either of the 2 bordering streets. The centre's sloped multi-level setting integrates the building beautifully with its residential surrounding despite being a large childcare facility.
