Due to the government's quality agreements budget has freed up for improving areas within the academy. After visiting the participation councils in the ATD, it became clear that there is a great need for places to sit together in small groups. A space where you can consult with a small group, eat or drink something or just lounge around. 

Within the academy, the canteen area on the fourth floor provided an opportunity to realise this space. The designers opted for sustainable materials, reused furniture and new applications for the wood of the tables that were there. During the design process, regular coordination was sought with representatives from the community. The microwaves have been relocated to the pantry, where students can also make their own tea and wash the dishes they brought with them. Suitable plants will be added to complete the look.
