Back in January, I was contacted by Nicole Yonke of Annette English & Associates, an interior design firm based in Los Angeles. Nicole asked if I would be interested in working with them and Reggie Sully of McCoy Construction (they create incredible homes for some of our most famous Hollywood royalty) and donating time to create a children’s center within the Good Shephard Center for Homeless Women and Children in Los Angeles. I quickly responded with an enthusiastic YES! Dates were arranged, plane tickets were purchased and some “before” snapshots of the space were sent.
The space is large, clean, bright…and boring. It looks vaguely like an office space. The eleven panels of the moveable wall presented another design challenge. The wall had to stay functional for larger events where the children’s center and the next door community room become one larger space.
