Project: Wigan Youth Zone
Type: New Game Zone, Café Zone and Meeting Room
Wigan Youth Zone is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art youth facility in Wigan town centre. It offers young people from across Wigan the opportunity to meet friends, have new experiences, learn new skills, and access the support they need to develop and achieve. Truline were delighted to work with Wigan Youth Zone to upgrade some of the ground floor facilities to include:
The café area was modernised to provide a more aesthetically inviting environment for members – A Youth Zone equivalent of a trendy coffee shop seen on many high streets.
A new gaming zone was created, providing a bank of TV screens with storage to house gaming machines. The Gaming Zone is a social area for approx. 20 young people. The dividing partition is low enough to maintain visual connectivity with other areas of the Youth Zone.
1:1 Meeting Room
The meeting room provides a space that allows private and confidential discussions and interventions to take place with parents/ carers of young members.
The scope of works included the following:
- Upgrading the wall and floor finishes palette to the existing café
- Booth lighting and small power with USB ports to existing walls.
- Bespoke-built gaming unit to house four 32” TV screens with lockable storage beneath & suitable power.
