Lone Tree, CO
This is a 15,500 sf child-care and learning facility for children ages 6 weeks up to 12. The building is designed in the mountain lodge style. An entry bridge transports visitors across a dry river bed to the building entrance. The lobby opens to a high vaulted ceiling interior which carries through the mountain lodge style. The play area is a central feature in the building. The center has an arts room and a computer room in addition to individual classrooms for various age groups. The outdoor play area is another spectacular feature of this project. An outdoor mural painted on a site retaining wall, visually extends the playground into a Colorado mountain landscape.
