Y2Y News

Studio G has been excited to work with Y2Y on a pro bono basis for over a year to design the new space.  Studio G Principal Gail Sullivan and Project Manager Rashmi Ramaswamy (also of SHED Studio in Chicago) facilitated design workshops with youth to make sure that the shelter and support center would be welcoming to all.  The result is a highly innovative design with no gender-identified dorms or bathrooms, so that youth who are LGBTQ don’t feel obliged to identify themselves.  Each young person in the shelter has an individual bunk with its own light, phone charging station and storage spot. 

Studio G has helped Y2Y to bring the project to fruition by connecting many volunteer groups for interior design, carpentry, and donated materials.
