The childcare design references elements of the English barque ship, Eglinton which was wrecked on the coast
The design acknowledges the remnants of the barque ship through the use of light tones in opal polycarbonate cladding, white painted masonry brick resonating light, sandy and ship sail connotations. The timber finished façade sections reflect the outdoor lifestyle, beach driftwood and the hull of the ship.
Proposed materials were kept as minimal and natural as possible. Some shade within the playground is created using shade sails, however, trees will grow up to create natural dappled shade across the site. The playground landscape at Amberton Beach Childcare has been designed to sit within the local ecological environment.
