We were invited to develop a project partnering with the South London YMCA to provide a supported living facility for 44 single vulnerable young people, aged between 16-19. The facility generates a safe oasis of calm for young people whose general life is fraught with difficulty, and can often be violent and abusive. Together with shared living, and independent living room types, the scheme provides teaching spaces, kitchen spaces and gardens to teach the residents all the necessary life skills to be able to transfer into mainstream housing.
