td-atelier creates a multipurpose platform in the classroom of a recently-shut junior high school that combines a space for events, a book rental and a tea shop. the 6 by 3.3-m wooden plane rises parallel to the floor level and offers a variety of surfaces to be used as tables, chairs, bookshelves and a stage.
