The school’s existing 1960s architectural themes form the basis for the refurbishment of the staff room. The design and materials used in the kitchenette and the library, which split the open-plan space into zones, contrasts with the remaining area. However, a meaningful dialogue is established due to the proportions and structure of the furniture.
