• How to turn a prison into a hotel and a ammunitions storage hall into a restaurant
• What are the main challenges when re-purposing a space and how can these be overcome?
• Is there anything the original designers could have done differently to aid the conversion if they had known the space would see a change of use
• What types of spaces are the most challenging in respect of flexibility and adaptability?
