NOV 2016 - DC Play Space Opens!
Mickus Projects teamed up with owner/enterpreneurs George and Maria Vogelei to design and build a children's play space in the suburbs of Washington, DC. The business is named Nook™, and the concept is to remove the overstimulating and chaotic elements of typical crowded play spaces, and replace them with a thoughtfully designed sensory experience where a child's imagination can unfold, and a relaxing space for the parents to watch and participate. The mission, put simply, is to bring thoughtful design to play. Nook™ is divided into several different play areas or "nooks", each with its own play theme. You'll find nooks for art, music, reading, building, climbing, and sensory play. There's also a nook designed especially for infants. To keep up with your child's growing imagination, play themes in each nook will change periodically throughout the year.
