Narrow Sloping Lot

This building design has been created to maximize a narrow and steeply sloping lot.  Local zoning code requires that the building front be within 30′ from the main street.  As a result, a street front design was created for curb appeal.  As you enter into the site, you drive along the side of the building to the rear side of the building to access the main childcare entrance. 

Extensive amounts of retaining walls have been designed to raise the building slab elevation and enable the rear entrance to serve as the main handicap accessible entrance.  Retaining walls are also used extensively to level the rear playground to capture as much usable space for play as possible.
