Kimmel Bogrette completed Interior Design services for the new Environmental Education & Visitors’ Center at the Jenkins Arboretum. Located in the heart of the Main Line of Philadelphia, the Arboretum is one of the area’s major horticultural and environmental assets. The new Center was envisioned as a Tree House that looks out over the tops of trees in the surrounding botanical gardens. The interior spaces function as a gateway from the parking lot to the gardens. The carpeting pattern lays out a pathway that leads visitors through the airy spaces and welcomes the outside in. Spaces include a conference room, reception desk, gift store, environmental education areas and restrooms. Sustainable design features on the interior include waterless urinals, LED lighting, the use of existing furniture, sustainable materials for carpets and finishes, as well as geothermal heating and cooling.
