For an on-campus nursery and child-care center for a big Oklahoma business, the Chesapeake Child Development Center in Oklahoma City is a place that any parent would want to bring their children. Elliott + Associates Architects spent a full year doing research to create an inspired place for the children of Chesapeake Energy Corporation employees to learn and grow. The architect wanted to create a space where kids wanted to be, and the firm was able to accomplish that by making the architecture an extension of the children’s education. The building is full of interactive learning experiences from the geometric shapes on the façade to the pumpkin orange-labeled floors, making the building a step in educational development.
