LAS ROSAS CENTRO INFANTIL:
CARTAGO, COSTA RICA

Exterior Render

 

Selected by Habitat for Humanity Costa Rica following an initial design competition, my task was to design a child care center following strict program and budgetary limitations.  I was asked to complete a set of construction documents, including electrical and plumbing plans, as well as a series of renderings to be used for informational as well as fundraising purposes.

Using the University of Minnesota Child Development Center (UMCDC) as a precedent study, I carefully analyzed building layout, room connections, and connection to the outdoors, using my findings from that research to influence my design for the new project.
