Major refurbishment of an existing building to meet a complex brief, and provide an uplifting and forward-thinking facility.
AMA were commissioned by London Borough of Southwark to design and manage the refurbishment of an existing young persons care home into an office base and central hub for the Children Looked After Service operating in the borough as a contact centre. The refurbishment enabled key staff, who had been previously distributed across the borough, to be unified in a single facility.
As part of our service, we carried out workshops with focus groups. The focus groups offered key input that influenced the design of the layout, prioritising the needs of care staff, volunteer carers, clients and most importantly the children in the new facility.
