Would Works brings furniture to the streets!

Would Works brings furniture to the streets!

We are proud to be participating in a broad collaboration between City of Los Angeles, the Skid Row Community Improvement Coalition, along with designers and community organizations across LA to create a pilot hygiene center in Skid Row.

Starting this Summer, Would Works will begin building redwood furniture and storage cubbies for the Skid Row Community ReFresh Spot located at 557-559 Crocker Street. The ReFresh spot offers Skid Row residents access to showers, toilets, and broader health services.  The furniture, designed by local architecture firm Office 42, will provide residents with a safe place to store their belongings while they use the facilities, and a comfortable place to relax, rest, or socialize.  

Council member José Huizar says about the project:

“Access to safe, clean toilets and a hot shower are a basic human right. This will be more than a hygiene center. Our aim is to give the residents of Skid Row a sense of hope and dignity that better days are possible..."

Would Works aims to bring our artisans a sense of hope and dignity as well, and so we are honored to be participating in the beautification of this much needed public service site.
