Stephen Lewis Foundation

Since 2003, The Stephen Lewis Foundation has partnered with grassroots, community-based organizations in sub-Saharan Africa who are turning the tide of HIV & AIDS. Kirsh Design feels privileged to have assisted The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) as they grew their Toronto headquarters. This project was a labour of love - with all consultants, suppliers, and contractors deeply invested in providing a superior space, while keeping costs to a minimum.

The foundation’s lofty and eclectic art collection depicting African women, communities and culture was the main design inspiration. The earthy palate, and saturated colours were meant to make the artwork feel like part of the space, rather than on display. The brick and beam space was opened up to create a light filled work zone. A large flexible meeting room accommodates the entire SLF team while also supporting fundraising events.
