East Sydney Early Learning Centre

East Sydney Early Learning Centre is a state-of-the-art childcare and community centre, built to provide childcare places for parents living or working in the inner city suburbs of Sydney.

ABA transformed the existing building into a 3-level childcare centre with 5 playrooms, indoor playgrounds and an open-air play space on the top floor.

Toko developed the playful signage system inspired by children’s building blocks used for improving gross motor skills and spatial awareness. The concept and materials generate an effective system that is functional never rigid and/or contrived. Natural timbers, colours, typography and form compliment the geometric nature of the interior and it’s purpose.

The fully modular timber signs (magnetic application) can be re-configured if required and are all unique in appearance. The primary colour pallet of vintage building blocks has not been adopted, instead a lighter more contemporary pallet has been developed.
