Bouverie Street Childcare
Kennedy Nolan Architects have been engaged by the University of Melbourne to design a new building for an 80 place childcare centre with additional levels for childcare administration and university office area. As principal consultant with a multi-disciplinary team Kennedy Nolan are developing a proposal that is sustainable and integrated with the university campus and community. The design is a highly considered and responsive outcome delivering to the various needs of the client groups and various regulatory bodies.
The proposal aims to create place and spaces that are inclusive, creating a sense of belonging and opportunities of discovering moments within the architecture to enhance the experience. The design intends on providing opportunities that will encourage and foster play, social interactions and encounters of varying levels of challenge within their day to day play and activity.
The design adopts passive and active sustainable design features to ensure the indoor and outdoor environments are natural and are efficient in their operation, energy usage and general environmental impact.
