This paper is based on the assumptions of Henri Lefebvre’s spatial triad and Tor Hernes’ processual worldview, with the objective to study the organisational space in historical context. Drawing on archival materials and semi-structured interviews, it demonstrates how empirical case, Founder’s Building, has been experienced over 130 years. Specific attention is directed towards both the differing and the similar ways of experiences, and how these interplay with social norms. The case of Founder’s Building is used to demonstrate the potential explanatory power of this analytical pathway.
