We’ve chosen to highlight King’s Kids, a space also known as the kid’s corner, from Church of the King, in Kenner, Louisiana. The church underwent an entire renovation converting from an outdated & unused movie theatre, to a staple in the community representing faith and connection. The aesthetic for this area was lead with an energetic vision from the church staff and fine-tuned by the architect & designer. Creating a space for kids of multiple ages required forethought of fixed furnishings and also flooring. The floorcovering needed to be lively, easily maintained, and budget friendly, which is why a vast range of colors of vinyl composition tile
were chosen. The flooring took on its own level of way finding. Each color of VCT was laid on the floor to strategically coincide with the correct room for various age groups. This more easily helps the children with learning their designated space & provides a simpler time leading for church staff. The unique challenge in designing this space was to provide a multi-campus church with its own identity. Each location has a distinctive congregation varying in ages, background, and character, so it was necessary to create an atmosphere where this congregation could thrive. Being true to their roots and raising the next generation is a vital component in growing their outreach within the community.
