Career Quest Learning Centers was looking to enter the Kalamazoo marketplace with their well-known education facilities. Their goals included making the interior energetic and modern.
SKP Design was charged with re-purposing a former big box home center into an educational facility. This was achieved by space planning and developing features and hubs within the space. Angled and curved walls break up the entry and core circulation areas, and large classrooms were created. Bold accent colors of green, orange and blue were used, and existing concrete floors remained. Bright modern and graphic art was added as a feature. A gallery for rotating art is also situated near the entry and student break area to add interested to the gathering space.
