THE RENAISSANCE VILLAGE
by Hazel Omukoko
The main aim of this project is to create a safe space for Rough sleepers in the London Borough of Hackney. This will be in the form of a Rehabilitation Homeless Shelter that seeks to give homeless people a new lease of life by providing temporary accommodation and a programme that allows the individuals to garner helpful skills that will allow them to intergrate back into society once their stay is over.
One of the facilities in the shelter will include a retail space that will be a direct ticket into the work field for the rough sleepers during their rehabilititation process. They will be able to work in the space allowing them to earn a living through this.
