Constructed on the roof top of a 1960’s concrete medical office building, the Child Care Center is a 23,000 SF addition to Washington Hospital Health System in Fremont, CA. An open floor plan allows for staff/child visibility and ample natural light enhances both the physical and emotional well-being of the children. The center’s playfully multicolored spaces are appropriately small-scaled with circular, square, and clerestory windows throughout. The space accommodates up to 40 children (ages 2-5) and 20 infants (ages 0-2).
