The company, working alongside Storp Weber Architecture, has provided fittings for an accessible toilet and washbasin, plus a water-conserving self-closing tap.

The donation aims to help improve the space in Harlesden Town Garden, which is a community area that unites local people through a shared interest in gardening.  As a result of a growing number of residents using the space, a small, sustainable metal shed has been created to allow users to share tools and exchange allotment produce.

It is hoped that the additional resources for the garden, will also facilitate additional public events, including; art classes for children, outdoor activities and skills workshops, such as DIY and cooking.

Raj Mistry, Marketing Director at GROHE UK, said: “GROHE is specified for a lot of fantastic projects up and down the country and across the world, but we are truly honoured to have been able to support such a spirited, community project that will provide such excellent opportunities for local people.”

“As a brand, we are really passionate about sustainability and healthy living from a holistic perspective, and this project perfectly articulates those values. We can’t wait to see how the space continues to support and encourage the Harlesden community.”

Patrick Weber, Co-founder of Storp Weber Architecture added: “It was very important for us to offer accessible toilet facilities including a wall hung cistern. GROHE were able to support us with this thanks to the Rapid SL frame which sits behind the wall and is adjustable in height, meaning we could sit the toilet at an optimum that would be suitable for all users. In addition, we love the simplicity and the water-saving features of the Euroeco Cosmopolitan self-closing tap in the bathroom which the team found very easy to install and work with. Meanwhile, the green hose of the kitchen tap is a really eye-catching centre piece for the kitchen area.”
