Three playrooms are linked together by a single-storey building, with a large rooflight offering views up to the tree canopy. A first floor area contains offices, staff and family rooms. Each of the playrooms opens out to a covered terrace.
The timber structure is a natural, sustainable material providing the perfect combination of warm, tactile, welcoming interior.
