118 Landscape Architect and Specifier News Niles Bolton Associates Atlanta, Georgia Home Depot Little Apron Academy, Atlanta, Georgia Employees at The Home Depot's Atlanta headquarters no longer have to worry about childcare and preschool for their children. The home improvement giant engaged NBA to develop and design the Little Apron Academy, a 37,000 square foot learning facility with five separate age-specific exterior playgrounds totaling 12,000 square feet. To integrate the playscapes with the buildings and drop-off and parking areas, the design team sculpted the play area spaces to work with the ecological and functional characteristics of the site (topography, utilities, drainage, and security). The resulting design weaves the structure and transparency desired by parents and operating staff, with dynamic play elements that inspire kids to have fun and let their imaginations run free.
