Where are you?  What did you use this for in the past?  Who had access to this space?  What does this space mean to you?  How do you interact with others in this space?  How do you usually move through  this space?
Inhabit the space the way you do every day. Move through the space. Walk through the space. Touch the space. Document your findings.
