American Eagle Outfitters Childcare Development Center

Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Size: 8,000 SF

This center is located adjacent to American Eagle Outfitters’ world headquarters, in a retail section of Pittsburgh, where it shares a building with an American Eagle Outfitters store.

The bright, open classrooms and bold, warm colors meet the client’s goal to reflect the brand image. The center includes an art studio, a learning resource center, and a centrally located gross motor skills space, all of which are designed to develop and stimulate growth. There is also a “School’s Out” area that accommodates employees on school breaks. The center fits into the culture of the surrounding neighborhood while providing a unique space for the children who attend.

studioMLA Architects carried this project through design development. A local architecture firm produced the working drawings.
