apple seeds family play center
10 West 25th Street, NYC
Completed 2007

How to design the best possible playspace for city kids aged 0-5 AND their parents? That was the challenge when approaching the through-block prime retail space in Chelsea. Our solution was to develop a design concept that respects both the children's and adult's perspectives.

We created a safe and stimulating environment with elements sized especially for children while also offering a comfortable refuge for parents. Color, light and shape provide easy pathfinding for the children while open gathering spaces foster community among parents.
