Client: Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Location: Footscray, Melbourne VIC
Hello City worked throughout 2016 with the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre on The Together Project.
The project has sought to reframe the relationship between the centre’s staff, members, supporters and volunteers by transforming the large members space through co-design.
The huge space is home to a kitchen, dining area for 200 people, children’s area, legal advice space, library, event and food store.
The Together Project achieved a massive amount of member involvement through workshops, codesign processes, focus groups and surveys and developed a vision for the look, feel and use of the space in partnership with some of the foremost design thinkers of Melbourne. The project has now moved into delivery phase to achieve the vision and bring colour, life, comfort, texture and function to this multifaceted facility.
