brwarchitects has been recognized as one of eight national firms for the Bright Horizons Architects Guild for childcare and early education centers. These firms have an expertise in the design and creation of environments specifically for infants and very young children, whose needs and wishes are distinct from older children. These environments are designed to be aesthetically and ergonomically age- appropriate; to create healthful environments that inspire both creativity and safety; and to balance the needs of very young children with those of their adult caregivers. In collaboration with Bright Horizons, brwarchitects completed the design of the Sharon L. Hostler Child Development Center at the University of Virginia in 2014. Currently the firm is working with Bright Horizons on projects in Virginia and Pennsylvania.
