The Town of Hoosick needed space to offer low-cost childcare and to hold community meetings. The Commission on Economic Opportunity engaged architecture+ to create a single building to accommodate both needs. We provided planning, design and construction administration for the project.
The resulting building complements the neighborhood while meeting the client's needs in a fun, engaging and stimulating setting.
Three childcare rooms are situated so that each occupies a corner of the building. Corner windows extend to the floor so that the toddlers can enjoy an outdoor view. The multipurpose therapy/meeting room is located to provide evening access to the kitchen and bathrooms without compromising the security of the childcare facility.
The facility, at 5,600 square feet, accommodates 44 children in 3 childcare rooms (1 toddler and 2 preschool). It also includes a therapy/community meeting room and commercial-grade kitchen.
