The Growing

Back to About

Gulsah Unal is a keen believer in the power of design as a trigger for fateful encounters and as space for prompting collaboration, and thus a catalyst for positive change. As an architect and designer, her experience ranges from masterplanning to technical detail design for small scale projects. Most recently she completed the designwork for neighbourhood cafés Yucca Garden Café in Camberwell and the Jumo Café in Kensington. Both have been praised for their inviting atmospheres achieved through careful design and choice of materials.

Currently she is collaborating with the family services department of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to assemble a team of creative practitioners to create Freeda, an educational network for girls aged 11- 14 from disadvantaged backgrounds.
