BOCA RATON, FLORIDA
More than 1,000 children call this private country club community home, with the unique identity in South Florida as the youthful, family friendly club. The 4,200 sqft Children’s Clubhouse was built specifically for them in mind. The floor plan was organized into 3 distinct areas, the Lobby, “Kids Korner” and Game Room.
The finishes were carefully selected to emphasize the free-spirited nature of children. Vinyl upholstery and woven vinyl flooring were used for easy maintenance and cleaning, while selected in fun, bright colors and displayed in unique patterns to inspire creativity.
The Lobby, designed for gathering, check-in and registration, has a 25ft clerestory ceiling above the reception desk in a beautiful sky-blue paint color with a grouping of colorful, sea urchin inspired light fixtures. Vibrant accent strips of woven vinyl were carefully placed to coordinate with the same color vinyl covered bench for slipping shoes on and off. A set of colorful, sea inspired artwork hangs above each bench. The placement of the reception desk along with frameless glass partitions to both the Kids Korner and the Game Room allow for staff visual connection to both adjacent spaces.
The “Kids Korner” for numerous children’s activities, babysitting services and play for the youngest members ages 6 months to 7 years, was specifically designed into various sections for each type of activity or play. Colorful circular patterns of blue, orange and pink in the floor along with complimentary colored circular dropped ceilings designate areas for computers, a baby area for crawling, reading and quiet play. Smartly designed, curved bookcases follow the circular floor pattern of each space to help section off each area while doubling as much needed storage for toys and games. A full kitchen along with an arts and crafts area are also provided.
The Game Room, for children 8 years or older, was specially designed to give teens their own identity, a place to play and hang out safely without being overly supervised. Video and arcade games, pinball, air hockey and more will keep older children busy for hours. This space also used colorful circular floor patterns and dropped ceiling designs (here in more teen appropriate colors of lime green, purple and dark blue) to designate areas for television or lounging, video games and arcade games.
