Co-lab was tasked with the challenge of squeezing over 200 children into a site less than 1800 square metres while still adhering to rigorous planning overlays including a maximum height limit of 10 metres and an expansive 47 space underground car park.

Timber battens were employed to conceal functionality and complement the shape of the site. The screening maintains the privacy of those inside while also providing ample views from outdoor play spaces to the surrounding area.
