Keele University Day Nursery


Keele University Day Nursery

Halliday Meecham Architects have significant experience in the design of nurseries and have recently delivered projects for Trafford Council and Kids Unlimited.

The brief from Keele University was to design a new day nursery for staff and the local community. The accommodation is split between three blocks arranged around a central courtyard play area and provides facilities for 128 children as well as holiday and after school clubs.

The nursery features an array of photovoltaic panels and a green roof. The brightly clad external envelope creates a facade which is both playful and stimulating and is designed to maximise natural ventilation and daylight throughout.
