The Architects for Peace Pro bono team was delighted to be invited to a BBQ held recently at the Fitzroy Learning Network in celebration for the completion of their renovated kitchen and staff room.
The Fitzroy Learning Network (FLN) is a not-for-profit Neighbourhood House, offering a range of services, support and training courses for newly arrived refugees and migrants.
FLN approached Architects for Peace after they received a grant from the Department of Planning and Community Development in 2009 which allowed them to refurbish their facility, of which a new kitchen was their priority. We were happy to assist as we recognised that their old kitchens did require upgrades and the project was for the benefit of the community. Kalli, the A4P pro bono coordinator for the project at the time, then met and discussed the initial brief with staff at FLN and arranged for the advertisement of an Expression of Interest for the provision of pro bono architectural service.
