This concept creation by Robert Lange celebrates the idea that the kitchen is a social hub, allowing people living in a communal environment to interact socially while preparing independent meals. The space is also versatile enough to adapt to changing communal demographics.
Many kitchens now feature duel cooking and cleaning zones in order to aid work flow and function but it is interesting to see this idea adapted specifically for a “flat share” situation.
Maybe in the future we will all be forced to reconsider our living arrangements and these social pressures may remould our expectations of the kitchen.
Within kitchen design human and social elements dictate the equilibrium and influence the pace of change...we have interesting times ahead!
