Through research, the study aimed to present and uncover spatial processes in school such as planning, designing, building and using. The case is chosen because of its authenticity as an alternative school experience in Turkey and its repurposed old village school building which seems contradictory to its educational approach.

The participatory observation method was also used on workshops. This research, carefully designed to fit school and children routines. Research participants tend to be seen as active researchers on research processes.
