YabuPushelberg Design Statement:
Warm, modern and bright, the interior concept for Egale Centre is as progressive and sophisticated as the organization’s mandate to nurture and support LGBTIQ2S youth in Toronto’s downtown core.
Our desire was to create interiors that would not be viewed as institutional.
A transitional home can, and should be, uplifting and nurturing; as well as practical, without compromising the aesthetic value.
We want the people living and working in Egale Center to feel pride and a sense of place; for the environment to strengthen feelings of confidence and self-worth.
Private spaces are thoughtfully detailed and well appointed, and the use of simple, honest materials will communicate feelings of warmth, care and comfort.
Public spaces promote social interaction, and uphold the sense of safety and security and communal support that the residents can expect from Egale Centre.
