Jump Start Day Care is a building that meets the tight cost constraints and industrial location through the use a simple form and basic materials while creating a rich diversity of space within.
At each extreme of the volume winter gardens are used to provide intermediate play spaces that can be used throughout the year. The services areas are positioned to the south under a 2.4m high stud while the main internal teaching, reading and eating areas inhabit the full height of the volume and the associated full hieght windows.
The simple fitout in strandboard linings is punctuated by splashes of colour
