Gensler designs a co-working space for the Stephen Lawrence Centre

The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust has launched a co-working space for start-ups and small businesses in London, designed by Gensler. Colour and green plants enhance the open plan workspace designed to empower its users.

The Stephen Lawrence Centre will bring desk and event spaces to members with a choice between flexible or long-term memberships. A variety of areas is available including the members’ studio, the residence space, meeting rooms and an event facility with a roof terrace. The team reconfigured three floors of the centre, opening space up and evolving its purpose while upholding the spirit of the centre’s aims. Solid walls were replaced with glazed partitions and an orange colour was painted across the floors, walls and ceilings of the centre.

The centre, with its motivational atmosphere, filled with natural daylight and colour, is designed to fuel collaboration and connectivity. It focuses on the Trust’s work supporting youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. In 2017 alone, the SLCT supported over 2,000 young people through training, mentoring, bursaries and other activities.
