Can a children’s room be a work-of-art? Developers are beginning to team up with world class art institutions to transform playrooms into artistic masterpieces. This high quality level of artwork can inspire them to be more creative and take their imagination to the next level.
180 East 88th St
The Children’s Museum of Art collaborated with New York-based developer DDG to create a one-of-kind play space at their new building at 180 East 88th St. In addition to working with the Museum, the developer also commissioned muralist Sean Murtha, who has created many of the backgrounds depicted in the dioramas at American Museum of Natural History, to craft a wildlife mural to be housed in the children’s playroom. His wildlife designs are inspired by the still-remaining pockets of field, forest and salt marsh on the north shore of Long Island where he grew up.
1010 Park Avenue
This colorful retreat transforms any play date into a circus-themed adventure. Custom interactive elements include activity boards, wall-mounted cubby for books and toys, and a built-in puppet theater while the luxe, “old-time” circus aesthetic complete with a ceiling painted to resemble a red, white and blue circus tent and a lively lighting fixture composed of illuminated balloons. A custom carpet depicting classic circus animals finalizes the aesthetic.
30 Park Place
Located in Tribeca at the corner of Church Street and Park Place and standing at 926 feet, 30 Park Place is the tallest condominium tower downtown to grace the skyline with panoramic views of Midtown Manhattan, the Hudson and East Rivers, the New York Harbor and Statue of Liberty. 30 Park Place features nearly 40,000 square feet of amenities, as well as a full suite of hotel services, all managed by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. The entire 38th floor is devoted to dedicated private residential amenities and is home to a children’s play room designed by the Roto Group. From building blocks and cookware, to “campfires” with teepees and a host of books, the playroom at 30 Park Place is perfect for entertaining kids within an artfully-designed space. Available to create your own art, the magnetic wall is a place in the playroom where kids can use a variety of shapes, letters, numbers and more for a masterpiece of their own. The Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown sits below the private residences at 30 Park Place and is a great place for family and friends to stay just steps away.
Rising along 200 feet of unrivaled Biscayne Bay frontage in Miami’s thriving Edgewater neighborhood, OKO Group’s Missoni Baia is the first-ever branded residences from the legendary Italian fashion and design house, Missoni.

A one-of-a-kind playroom with a spectacular view of Biscayne Bay celebrates Missoni’s embrace of family and reflects the colorful aesthetic and whimsical sensibility of Angela Missoni’s own home, with playhouses dressed in Missoni-patterned fabrics and playful details like garden gnome stools and a fanciful Missoni butterfly pattern on the walls.
