Young Mind Community Center brings together clinical expertise in autism and excellence in early childhood education. Dig Studio worked closely with the client to develop a program and design that supported the functions of the clinic and preschool while doubling as a community focused gathering space.
The design of the courtyard created a multi-age, cost efficient environment that helped facilitate therapy and the development of those served by the community center. From sensory play to social play, nature play and horticultural experiences, a variety of programmable spaces offer flexibility for maximum usability of the space. Sensory walks and wall panels, vegetable and butterfly gardens, and a custom built metallaphone combine with vibrant play features to create an immersive play and learning environment that stimulates the senses
