SKETCH Administrative Hub Gets a Refresh

Our recent SKETCH Administrative Hub has been featured in the press as an example of how sensitively designed spaces can foster inclusive environments.

SKETCH is a Toronto-based organization that engages at-risk youth through the arts. A profile in Azure Magazine about our interior renovation highlights how a cohesive design can elevate productivity and professionalism. The renovation features a dense, but structured floorplan and employs form and colour to organize multiple functions in one office. This development allows a relatively small space to better serve a larger community of both SKETCH employees and at-risk youth. The result of this project is an inclusive, empowering space, as Interior Design Principle Janine Grossmann describes in Monocle. Grossmann explained the goals of the design to onOffice saying, ‘The bright open-concept layout promotes inclusivity while also providing a space that makes the staff feel comfortable and productive. Ultimately, it is a place of order for youth who may not otherwise have that order in their lives”.

We are proud to support the creative training SKETCH offers to marginalized groups in our community by providing our design services pro bono, with the contribution of materials by ARIDO (the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario).
