Based on its speculated use an intensive co-design workshops was held to produce the school’s spaces.

Twelve yet-to-be-introduced students mapped out working habits, daily rituals, desires and expectations, which were then transposed and negotiated into spatial elements.

The process culminated in the design and production of studio spaces and the conversion of the “Tin-Tin Room” into a social space that functions as library, kitchen, dining, rehearsal and seminar room, and features an illuminated public noticeboard/window.
