Arroyo Viejo Child Development Center
An aging facility has been transformed through mindful renovation, creating a safe, unique place for children to learn and play. Located in East Oakland, the CDC was in need of significant upgrading. Keeping the majority of the existing structure intact, the new design breathes life into a dilapidated building and reorients the building entry to provide a comfortable courtyard space with a variety of opportunities for children to explore.
