Annie’s Daycare at Esket has an open concept design for the infant and 3-5 year spaces as well as a large central kitchen and dining area. While separate the elders centre was designed to enhance opportunities for interactions between the kids and their elders. The elders space overlooks the infants playground. A retractable wall divides the elders and youth centre to accommodate larger events for either group as needed or have the youth and elders mix (lock is on the elders side so they choose!). One unique aspect of this building was it’s connection to the community bio-energy heating system.
