This project involved the refurbishment of an office space and warehouse into a Youth Services Hub, where youth service providers including Headspace, YSAS, Centrelink and Medicare Local provide support and activity programs for young people.

I facilitated participatory design workshops which brought young people who use the services together with staff, counsellors and senior decision-makers to explore design options for the site. Providing a forum in which young people could talk about their experiences and hopes for the new centre was the first step in creating a safe, welcoming and constructive atmosphere at the centre.
