Connor’s Cove Children’s Theater at Hardesty Regional Library

Tulsa, OK

With his donation for a new children’s theatre at Hardesty Library, Tulsan Roger Hardesty looked to create an environment promoting the love of books to children, teens and families through live productions and performances. Mr. Hardesty’s grandson, Connor, chose the nautical design theme from several options presented by KKT Architects, Inc. While the theatre’s entrance stands out with its colorful, whimsical nature signifying the children’s area, its central form and construction method complement the existing library. When designing the interior of Connor’s Cove, consideration centered on developing a flexible place with a timeless quality and practical durability.
