We are working on the conversion and refurbishment of an existing office building in Stratford, London to provide the homelessness charity St Mungo’s with a new head office and a Recovery College. Design proposals have arisen from an intensive co-design process we’ve carried out with the client, volunteers & users of the college.
The proposal will convert the ground and first floor into a Recovery College, an educational centre for people getting back on their feet. It will provide them with spaces for education, employment skills, art, music, social interaction, chill out and well-being.. The design will create a, light, welcoming & space for the clients of St Mungo’s.
The upper floors will be St Mungo’s head office. This will provide spaces for activity-based work . The plan arranges team neighbourhoods around shared ‘gardens’ spaces for flexible work . Social and quiet spaces as well as a flexible range of meeting spaces are proposed to fit with St Mungo’s work culture.
