MIT Lincoln Laboratory Childcare Center

Client: Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Location: Lexington, MA
Size: 9,750 SF

The Lincoln Laboratory Child Care Center’s key design goal was to incorporate hands-on learning at the core of its program. studioMLA Architects worked closely with the Operations Team to create age-appropriate spaces that support the curriculum, facilitate a wide range of creative activities, and invite parent engagement. Nearly 4,000 SF of wooded area was maintained “as is” for nature play and a naturalized playground was constructed above an asphalt parking lot at the request of the owners.
