Interior Design ProjectThe Biscuit Tin, 2022

The Biscuit Tin is a community centre based around the issues of food poverty and waste, which supports the community by offering a subsidised supermarket amongst other facilities. The project came about after extensive research into the issues of food poverty and waste in Edinburgh and aims to provide a space that takes away the stigma that is associated with poverty and the use of food banks, whilst also reducing and recycling food waste. The centre promotes inclusivity by providing an open and bright space, flooded with natural light, allowing all customers, regardless of their financial situation, to feel they are part of a community free from judgement.
