Las Rosas Centro Infantil

A child care center following strict program and budgetary limitations for Habitat for Humanity – Costa Rica.

Overview

Selected by Habitat for Humanity Costa Rica following an initial design competition, our task was to design a child care center following strict program and budgetary limitations. We were asked to create a complete set of construction documents, including electrical and plumbing plans, as well as a series of renderings to be used for informational as well as fundraising purposes.

Using the University of Minnesota Child Development Center as a precedent study, we carefully analyzed building layout, room connections, and connection to the outdoors, using our findings from that research to influence our design for the new project.
