“ASTUDIO’S REMARKABLE ABILITY TO ENGAGE AND INSPIRE THROUGH THEIR GREAT PASSION AND CREATIVITY HAS BEEN EVIDENT THROUGHOUT OUR TOKKO PROJECT. THEY WORKED WITH US IN DEVELOPING THE YOUTH STEERING GROUPS UNDERSTANDING OF DESIGN WHICH ALLOWED OUR TEAM TO FIND COMMON IDEAS THROUGHOUT THE CONSULTATION PROCESS. THIS INCLUSIVE APPROACH ALLOWED US TO FEEL RELAXED AND CONFIDENT IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT OUR VOICES AND OPINIONS WERE BEING HEARD DURING EACH STAGE OF THE DESIGN PROCESS.

FROM OUR NEW YOUTH CENTRE WE HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DEVELOP AN IDENTITY. IT HAS BECOME MORE THAN WALLS AND SPACES AND IS A COLLECTIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE YOUTH STEERING GROUP WHO HAVE DEVELOPED THEIR UNDERSTANDING OF DESIGN, AND THEMSELVES, THROUGH THE EXPERIENCE AND MENTORING WHICH ASTUDIO HAVE GIVEN TO US.”
