A playful ideal: East Sydney Early Learning Centre

An existing building, playground and laneway have been radically recast and creatively integrated, thanks to Andrew Burges Architects’ design for a new childcare and community facility in the densely knit Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst.

The buildings are arranged in a radial fan geometry, so as to open up views from the city to the harbour and to follow the sun’s trajectory.
