YMCA is an organisation offering youth work with a vision to transform communities so that young people can belong, contribute and thrive. Upon being tasked to design YMCA Swansea Youth Room, it was clear that a strong sense of mental health and inclusivity was at the centre of the project. The youth room hosts space for education, youth support, group activities, and entertainment. Collecting research from staff highlighted the need for a fresh, decluttered environment that helps relax the mind and is easy to keep tidy. The final design features pastel green walls, a chalkboard, fitted furniture, modular seating, high-level storage, and a professional projector. The colour choice, furniture layout, and furniture selection were chosen based on mobility and storage in mind helping to keep a clear space that influences a clear mind-set.
