This space was dreamed up for the children. Creating a joyful and happy learning environment was the main priority. Per the designer, “There are stylized nods to transit in some of the details since they are blocks from an airport and an industrial trucking/train hub, but nothing was literal.”
Acoustics were another factor that played into the design, due to the proximity to the airport and the nature of such vast, open/connected spaces.
The vision was brought to life by talented installers and fun flooring materials that really captured the overall concept. With approximately twenty-two material deliveries and the use of many different colors, materials and on-site cutting for borders and patterns, this one-of-a-kind install was no easy feat. Despite the complexity of the deliveries, the tight schedule, and the need for a meticulously detailed install, this job was completed on time and the children were given a creative space for their learning.
