Describe one of the projects you are most proud of
The project re-thinks an under-utilised space within a College campus into an innovative and vibrant space for students. Inspired by the GAME houses in Denmark, a 45ft recycled shipping container was transformed into a meeting hub branded as GAME BOX promoting a myriad of street culture activities such as hiphop, street soccer and graffiti art. The project also includes an outdoor "out of the box" chill area, using re-cycled oil drums, car tyres and wooden pallets. The space has an urban look and feel, inspired by the way of life youths aspire to, with a participatory management model involving students, lecturers and staff.
