Gingerbread, Boat and Sunset Daycares
This series of three Vancouver group childcare facilities were built to a common plan to accommodate 25 preschooler age children. Funded by the Provincial Government, each daycare replaced existing daycare facilities on the same sites with permanent factory built modular buildings.
Graham Hoffart Mathiasen Architects developed the common plan in joint consultation with each user group, leading to an easily supervised open concept floor plan. Spaces requiring separation are grouped around the perimeter of the central activity areas. Large windows open onto the outdoor play spaces for visual access, and natural light and ventilation.
