global citizenship Experience

As part of the 2013 Grant for Good initiative, Global Citizenship Experience received a complete rebrand to more accurately represent their mission and clientele. Working with the client to conduct extensive workshops with the high school youth at the school, a former small office space was transformed into a new youth lounge. Working with no budget, a rhomboid pattern was painted across the wall and floor of the space while cedar wood clad the opposite walls.  The lofted school space offered little privacy between rooms, which was partially resolved by wrapping the wood to create a false ceiling and cove area to delineate the space further.
