Park Avenue Boys' Room Contemporary Kids, New York

The challenge presented for this project was to transform a boys’ bedroom in an East Side townhouse into a no-holds-barred dream space. Perianth said goodbye to the racecar beds that once filled the room, and hello to a rock-climbing wall, a punching bag, a mini basketball court, and more. The circular cutouts are backed in Velcro and filled with removable ping-pong balls as part of the loft frames.

The room is also designed to contain clutter: Perianth created the loft spaces to include lots of storage for books, trophies and, of course, action figures. There is even built-in storage below the windows and beneath the beds.

The parents are thrilled that on rainy days, their sons now have multiple activities to keep them occupied without leaving their room.

WE have installed a wall in a house that we have custom built. It is 17 feet high similar to this room going to a loft over the hallway connecting our two boys rooms. We did not put in a harness and still worried about safety codes etc…Can you share your safety thoughts on this room?
Thanks

Dear Suzen, thank you for your comments. You should make sure that the new wall has plywood or another type of blocking in it so that the climbing wall is supported. Please check with your contractor and architect to get the load. Since it is so high, I also recommend you speak with a local structural engineer to get his/her take on the structure of the wall itself. In addition, I would take as many safety options as possible and available such as the harness, matts, maybe even consider a 'resting ledge' 2/3rds of the way up ... Could be cool and fun. I recommend speaking with the climbing wall specialist for additional tips. I hope this is helpful. Best, Hilary

Sure. The dimensions of this room are 16’10”l x 18’-7 ¼”w x 11'-3"h. There are two lofts in this room, so for a smaller room, you can do one loft. Also, the height of the lofts can be adjusted to a lower ceiling height. I hope this is helpful. If you would like any additional information, please feel free to email me at info@perianth.com. Very best, Hilary

The rock wall was purchased. This was from a company called Rockwerx, however, I believe they are no longer in business. A new source is http://www.adventuresolutionsus.com/products/modular-panels

This ceiling is approx. 11'-1" high, but the bed/lofts can be done in as low as 9'-6" high ceilings

Can you put a rock wall in a standard sized room, or would it be too small?

Dear Marilyn, Yes, you can put one anywhere. The most important thing is to have your contractor install "blocking" in the wall (plywood or steel behind the sheetrock or plaster wall for strength). The climbing wall is typically a board that is installed onto an existing wall and usually those panels can be cut to fit the area you need. Best, Hilary

Basketball Court - How did you create the basketball court in the room? My son loves this aspect of the room. This room has given us so much inspiration for our preteen sons room. I truly think your design is amazing. What material is the flooring made of?
