Thorpesjoinery help reform "Your Space" Area
About the Trust
Thorpes are delighted to have been involved in the recent fit-out of "Your Space" at the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust (SLCT). The Trust works with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to inspire and enable them to succeed in the career of their choice; giving them an opportunity and the support to flourish in a society that treats them with fairness and respect. Your Space underwent a transformation, evolving the design of the co-working environment to help empower, inspire, and support it's users.
The project was designed by global architecture firm Gensler and delivered by BW: Workplace Experts, but the wider project team consisted of 48-sub contractors and 34 suppliers, all of whom committed time and money to this cause, making it the largest pro-bono project of its type.
Our team at Thorpes Joinery supplied and installed several bespoke joinery items for this fantastic project and we are thrilled to be able to aid the Trust in its vision to grow their work and secure Stephen's legacy.
The main objective for project was to retain the same core values founded within the Trust and the bright interior is a manifestation of the emotional and physical healing process the trust represents. With such a large number of companies involved the fit out process involved fastidious planning and numerous meetings to ensure a smooth running project, and our team worked alongside many hardworking and creative individuals to help bring this concept into a reality.
