Here’s coverage of the ribbon-cutting ceremony domusstudio architecture attended for the Patrick Wade Child Development Center.

As part of the design/build team with general contractor T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc., domusstudio architecture provided planning and design services for the Navy’s newest childcare development center in Point Loma. Named for an American war hero who died in Iraq in 2007, the Patrick Wade Child Development Center is a state-of-the-art facility that can accommodate 72 employees and 218 children ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

The 25,866-square-foot building features: Spanish style architecture that blends in with the surrounding Liberty Station neighborhoods; security measures that assure the safety of military families; and LEED Gold sustainability.
