CHALLENGE

CHALLENGE

Known as a social welfare halfway house for drug addictions, Odyssey House has been operating out of a dated premise for decades and required an updated furniture refurbishment that created a welcoming look and feel for members and family affiliations. As a not-for-profit organisation, Odyssey had a tight budget with an objective to achieve a new public space with robust furnishings and private consulting areas across two levels.
