As the town grows so does the demand for expanded day care facilities. The design was to consider expanding the current facility around their large indoor play building, connect the buildings and add toddler space, offices, and treatment and counseling rooms. After a detailed site visit designs were developed and through 3 review periods the client decided on one layout that satisfied their needs. Designs were developed to enhance sunlight exposure and provide safe easy access to the site play areas.
