Rae Duncan Interior Design’s Wonderplay project was a children’s play space in Algonquin, IL. The goal of this commercial project was to create a modern, clean, and warm play space for children under the age of six. The space was an empty warehouse time space at the beginning. The budget was tight and the challenge was how to warm up such a wide open enormous space, both in square footage and ceiling height. Making the space functional and fun was a top priority. We divided up the space into café, storage, offices, party room, play space, and entry/ coat room area. We used wallcoverings and color to soften the space and make it more attractive and fun for children. Bringing the ceiling down with decorative elements was also important.
