thedesignfiles In February this year, Melbourne’s amazing Asylum Seeker Resource Centre @asrc1 sought assistance relocating their headquarters to a premises which would triple their size – a 3,000 square metre commercial office space, set over two levels in Footscray. It was a HUGE undertaking. The ASRC’s urgent call to action presented a unique challenge for interior designer @petrinaturnerdesign jumped in to lend her assistance. One inspiring creative collaboration worth sharing - full story on the blog today. Pics by @seanfennessy x 5h

thedesignfiles Regram from @gpez , because this movement has really struck a chord today. #illridewithyou is A peaceful and spontaneous response to today's awful events in Sydney. Standing together in peace, Sydney tweeters started a hashtag showing solidarity with Muslim Australians. #illridewithyou is now trending on Twitter worldwide. ️️ 3d
