There were several things we paid attention to, and which are: kitchen as an activity hub, the kitchen workflow, and the light of the area. In order for a activity hub of any kind to function, it has to become a center space with connections toward extension spaces (such as dining room or a living room in this case), because their functions overlap and interlock! Therefore the physical barriers between these spaces need to be torn down and opened up. We decided to connect the Dining Room and the Kitchen Area!
We also decided to rearrange the appliances and kitchen elements in order to accommodate a more fluid workflow of the kitchen area, which in most cases include several phases required for cooking: 1-STORAGE, 2-GROCERY CLEANING AND PREPARATION (preprocessing), 3-COOKING (thermal processing) and 4-GARNISHING/SERVING of the food!
According to our analysis the amount of light needed for an area of this kind, we decided to suggest lighter shades for the kitchen elements (creamy white, mint green, blue shades…). We also calculated and suggested the position and the kind of lights we thought of as optimal for kitchen area and food preparation.
