CHILDCARE CENTRE, HELENSVALE.
As part of our Master Plan for an existing Gold Coast commercial centre, we have recently completed a 113 place childcare centre project.
This new learning environment is perched one level above the existing commercial facilities which are also set to expand as part of the project. This model for a new densified mixed use development is enhanced with an interesting linking plaza between the commercial and early childhood zones.
Here, parents and children access the elevated facility via a communal landscaped ramp that offers a friendly transition to the upper level and plenty of opportunities to linger, play or explore. The journey is punctuated by several playful sculptures commissioned from a collective of local urban artists to enhance this urban plaza.
