Squire & Partners celebrate raw materials at The Department Store Studios
Squire & Partners has launched The Department Store Studios, a new local workspace next door to their award-winning offices in Brixton.
An inclusive workplace makes diverse employees feel valued, welcome, integrated and included in the workforce instead of isolated. However, it is nigh on impossible to design something that is a perfect fit for the entire population – isn’t it?
The definition of ‘inclusion’ often focuses on removing physical barriers that make buildings and spaces accessible to as broad a range of people as possible. This is obviously vital to boosting diversity and creating spaces that are fair, but surely we also need to ensure that our buildings are sensitive to mental health and neurodiversity issues as well as other hidden disabilities. However, in practical terms, how do we achieve this? Helen Berresford, Head of ID:SR, has the answers.
