Hardcastle Architects have worked successfully on a number of projects with Chris Sheen at Footsteps Day Nurseries in various locations around East London over the last few years. The projects generally require planning approval for a change of use to D1 including dealing with the transport & highway impact issues as well as the OFSTED and design requirements and building/fit-out works.
This project was in collaboration with Waltham Forest Council to take over a vacant area in a Community Centre on Queens Road, Walthamstow.
The spaces had to be re-organised to accommodate a new entrance location and to function properly as a day nursery. New toilets and kitchenettes were provided. There was a lovely large secure open outdoor space behind the centre that was re-landscaped with fixed timber play equipment and a gardening area.
