Fantails Childcare Early Learning Centre, Silverdale

Website

 The site for Fantails is located in a prominent position at the centre of a new subdivision of Auckland.

The client wanted the building to be a bold architectural statement, clearly standing out from the typical houses and commercial buildings around.

The triangular plan and elevation of the building is abstracted from the form of the fantail, a native NZ bird with a striking fanned tail, after which the Childcare is named.

Viewed from the entrance, the striking roof form comes together to look like the fan of the fantail, whilst from each opposite corner, the form takes on a more nautical feel, looking like overlapping sails on a yacht, thereby recalling its location in the ‘city of sails’.

Client: Fantails ChildcareLocation: Silverdale, Auckland, New ZealandConstruction cost: NZ$ 1.5 million; NZ$ 1.71 million including landscaping

Area: 550m²Programme: Completed
