Former mill space transformed into boutique early education center for Kidsborough/Littleborough in Hopkinton, MA

One big thing: Brand-colored, hand-painted murals create a unique kid-centric element in the facility

Design deets:

  • The 7,150 SF two-level former aftercare space was converted to create Littleborough, and a 3rd floor 4,200 SF space was built out for the after-school program, Kidsborough.
  • Gutted 1st and 2nd floors to create an infant room, two each, toddler and preschool rooms, as well as restrooms and age-appropriate gross motor and imaginary play areas.
  • Designed open play area, quiet study, new pantry, storage, and bathrooms in 3rd floor loft space.
  • Used sustainable rubber flooring and “roads” and “crosswalks” were created in main Littleborough circulation spaces to add both whimsy and order to the floor plan.
  • Maintained the architectural integrity of the old mill space, refinished the wood floors and columns, and used LED lighting to highlight existing wood beams.
  • Designed custom acoustical clouds and millwork “house” seating niches.
  • Coordinated furniture, equipment and finishes.
