Description

Richard M. Cole & Associates used bright colors, indestructible materials, ingenuity and a great sense of fun to create an indoor fitness center intended to get sedentary children moving.

A husband-and-wife summer-camp owner and pediatrician identified the need for a year-round facility to encourage children to be physically active and commissioned RMC&A to transform a vacant floor in an underutilized industrial building.

RMC&A retained the original concrete ceiling and beams to provide a sturdy framework for the 5,000-square-foot space and fitted out the facility with durable materials designed to take the impact of kids at play. Acoustic panels absorb sound, a rubber floor provides safety and specially-designed fabric ductwork is impervious to any errant ball.

With its brilliant color palette and bright lighting, the space, which also includes a dance studio, medical and dietician’s offices, is an irresistible setting for kids to get active for good health.
