Kids Play

Possibly the best children’s nursery operator in the UK – Kids Play’s flagship site in Milton Keynes was needing a refresh. The client wanted to use the process of rebuilding the site to re-brand the company - making the children’s experience the focus for that transition. The site was not the largest and had a very narrow frontage, therefore the stacking of the required internal accommodation and integration of Built Environment, Landscape and Infrastructure into an experientially activated whole proved to be transformational. This was true not only for the site, but the business model and brand awareness as well. The monitorised roof top garden the “drive through” philosophy for drop-off/pick-up and the architectural narrative (treehouse) - impressed parents, children, staff and the judges that awarded the project “Best Nursery 2018”.
