With the brief demanding a community space where people can work and ideas can be shared, I created a workflow in which I believe this process tends to happen and adapted the spatial layout to this.
The upcycling centre provides a lecture theatre with supporting seminar and class room spaces. These can be booked to hold events or meetings for those around the area who see it fit for the running of their programs. It also provides an exhibition space in which people experience the possibilities and see the value that can come from upcycling. Following this, it provides an open space collaborative work space. All open to the public.
With accompanied or granted access, the workshops and membership collaborative workspaces can also be accessed. Its main storage facility is also a very important feature to the projects program. Encouraging the contribution and usage of materials considered to be at the end of use by offering the option for the public to drop off materials as well as pick some up.
