The Centrepoint Garden explores the notion of home and celebrates the charity’s work in supporting young people facing homelessness. The evocative design offers a metaphor for the challenges faced by young people when their world becomes uprooted and fragmented and highlights how Centrepoint offers a healing process, supporting and nurturing young people, to enable them to grow and realise their potential.
The central structure of the Centrepoint Garden is a demolished and now ruinous house, where over time nature has taken over and begun to heal the scars. Within the garden Cleve will use a hierarchy of native and ornamental trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, ferns, bulbs and wildflower, so-called, ‘weeds’. What, at first glance, may appear to be a dysfunctional and fragmented spac, is in fact a thriving, natural and evolving habitat, which emphasises the important role nature plays in making a house a home.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Centrepoint provides housing and support for young people regionally in London, Manchester, Yorkshire and the North East and through partnerships all over the UK.
Centrepoint aims to give homeless young people a future and wants to end youth homelessness by 2037.
After RHS Chelsea 2023, elements of the Centrepoint Garden will be repurposed at one of Centrepoint’s Independent Living developments. The plants and landscape materials will offer a constructive legacy of the RHS Chelsea experience and will be used to create a communal green space, connecting young residents with nature and the many well-being benefits that provides.
