Memphis College of Art students turn typical apartments into stylish living spaces for the “ReStore for More” design contest. A collaboration between the Habitat for Humanity of Greater Memphis ReStore, The Venue Apartments, and Memphis College of Art, the contest features three teams tasked with creating the best redesign of a 1-bedroom apartment in Midtown’s The Venue Apartments. They were asked to use pieces from the Habitat ReStore and even build their own furniture and built-ins with reclaimed material. With a tight budget of $650, the students learned hands-on how to be creative in a real-world environment.
