The new Friends Center for Children shares the property with the Quaker Meeting House in Fair Haven. The two-story glu-lam beam structure was designed using LEED criteria and incorporates an active roof garden, geothermal heat pumps and locally manufactured and/or harvested materials.

In planning a space for young children, we paid particular attention to indoor air quality through the selection of low VOC materials and finishes, and design of fresh air ventilation systems. Each classroom has natural light, natural ventilation and direct access to the playgrounds and parkland beyond.
