First Assembly Children's Center
Las Cruces, New Mexico | Completed 2008
This fun Children’s Center contains first-class educational space specially designed to appeal to the children who use it. From obvious design choices like cheerful carpet, to architecturally responsive details like landmark entrances that make it easy for kids to navigate, this facility is an excellent example of how to do it right! The building features beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, while the U-shaped plan encloses a north-facing courtyard that provides a shady refuge most days of the year.
