Your Space (Stephen Lawrence Centre)
London, United Kingdom
Working closely with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, Gensler donated time and design expertise to reimagine this existing space. The design intent was to create a motivating setting that fosters networking, development, and collaboration among emerging architects, designers, and creatives, with a focus on the positive outcomes of the Trust’s work that have followed Stephen Lawrence’s tragic death in 1993. Gensler created a space that represents progression aiding the Trust in its vision to grow their work and secure Stephen’s legacy. Embracing natural daylight, connectivity, and the need for collaboration, the design is an evolution of the emotional response the centre once evoked. With an open and bright interior concept, the new co-working hub is a manifestation of the emotional and physical healing process, and the Trust’s journey since it was founded 20 years ago.
