Design of the social and working spaces through a series of experimental co-design workshops with the 12 OSE associates and members of the public who benefit from the school’s program.

The workshops focused on the imagined use of the school, associates' working habits, daily rituals, desires and expectations. The process culminated in the creation of 12 studio spaces and the conversion of the “Tin-Tin Room” into a social space that functions as a library, kitchen, dining and seminar room, and features a large swinging and illuminated noticeboard.
