They do fantastic work, and as architects we know how important surroundings can be to your mindset, so this seemed like a great place to start. Everyone at jbA values the chance to get involved in community projects and Stonepillow is an organisation we’ve long admired for their great work. Hopefully this is the start of many such projects with the team there – it’s been a great day for us, fostering teamwork and a real sense of achievement.”
