The new daycare building, dubbed ‘The Cabin’ by its users, provides the community of Squamish with an educational space for 20 preschool children that also serves as a before and after school care program for 24 children.


Sarah met early on in the process with the fire department, school principal and head of operations, to best locate the building to satisfy code requirements, fire fighter access, as well as existing below ground services.


Designed and constructed to high building envelope standards, the indoor-outdoor relationships are enhanced with strategically placed thermally broken aluminum curtain wall glazing and the robust wall assembly is clad with locally sourced cedar and vertical standing seam metal cladding. White birch plywood lines the interior of the educational play area which a focus on improving children’s wellbeing and creating a calming environment. Black chalkboard painted walls allow for the children to create and draw as they queue for the child sized toilets.
