Blue Sky Family Club

Emeryville, California

The client wanted to convert a former caberet restaurant into a family oriented kids club, with a climbing wall, a ball court, art stations, a reading area, a performance area, a restaurant, and private party rooms. To stay within a limited budget, a floor plan was developed with moveable partitions and equipment storage walls, to define spaces which could expand or become separated to accommodate multiple uses. Windows from the café allowed parents to relax while keeping an eye on their children in the secured activity area. Throughout the facility, the color scheme, the equipment and furnishings were specified at different scales to accommodate different age groups of kids.
