A fabulous enterprise invited Hookway Design to be part of the design team form the outset to create a bespoke children's centre.
Providing seven flexible meeting rooms, a main auditorium with seating capacity for 150 and further offices, sensory room, baby changing and 'family' kitchen.
An existing portal frame structure was stripped back and revamped, with small extensions to the front and side. The aim for the interior was to create a vibrant space to be inherently appealing to children from 5 - 11 years, whilst also being flexible for use by adult groups.
A strong emphasis was based upon the graphic branding and way finding to enable visitors young and old to navigate the site with ease. Colours and symbols were adopted to eliminate the need for literacy.
