The Children's Place
The Children’s Place, a national retailer of children’s clothing and merchandise, wanted to consolidate their New Jersey offices into a three-story office space located within an active retail development.
Two full-scale mock stores in the headquarters allow the design and marketing team members to experiment with product displays and train staff to ensure a consistent store brand across the nation. Open work areas integrated with private offices allow for executive, design, and administrative staff members to collaborate. A café located between the two mock stores creates a “mall like” atmosphere that allows for visual product display for the design and merchandising groups, showcases the current product to visitors, and serves as impromptu meeting space.
When selecting the materials and interior finishes to create a sophisticated, functional, and corporate work environment, KSS carefully integrated TCP’s four signature colors—pink, blue, green and purple—as accent colors. The team also balanced TCP’s need for extensive storage space with the need to provide daylighting and quality lighting to studio spaces. By collaborating closely with TCP, the project team, and local officials, KSS completed the renovation and tenant fit-out from programming to completion in just ten months.
