Sophie Jacqmin - interior designer, architect and judge at Perspective’s A&D Trophy Awards 2016 - has recently completed a selection of Kids Clubs

In association with Barriere Group, the designer has created spaces for three French hotels, namely: Hotel Le Majestic in Cannes, Hotel Les Neiges in Courchevel and Hotel Le Normandy in Deauville which has recently been renovated with the new addition.

The concept for the designs is based on a child's reality; how they live the best of both world's amidst dreams and fantasies. Kids are able to effortlessly join together as they meet at the kids club. Like a group of friends on holiday, kids can enjoy their stay as much as their family members on their get away.

In hopes to stimulate more creative imaginations and stories in a child's mind, the club space features elements of humour and poetry, helping kids to break the ice, bond and settle in with ease.

Making a breakthrough towards the conventional, Jacqmin's design provides edutainment; a balance between what is regarded as educational and enjoyable such as games and stories. A rather interactive and emotional approach to learning is much more ideal for kids in intriguing their interest to learn.

The concept of a child's reality runs on with cinema and cartoon inspired furniture present like wardrobe trunks, flight case tool boxes, a travelling workshop table, hanging tin lamps, artist's trailer and a huge carpet in the format of a story board. All of these details encourage kids to have ideas come to life and bring the world of dreams to reality then share them with friends and family.
