Courtyard Kitchen — Hong Kong
My Role in the Project:Author
Project Type:Food & Beverage, Furniture, Product
Inspired by one of the most commonly understood icon of a Chinese ‘family’ - Siheyuan, we took the motif of its spatial composition organising the kitchen as a miniature Siheyuan. Composed of the 4 essential operation blocks - Cleanse, Cook, Store and Dine, with a line of full height cabinets and fridge and freezer along the wall, the kitchen presents itself with a central ‘courtyard’ space surrounded by operation blocks linked by clear circulation. The Courtyard Kitchen strives to propose the kitchen as a ‘mini home’ within the apartment. We wish to propagate the enjoyment of high quality of family time through cooking and celebrate kitchen as a central family space instead of merely a tiny supporting facility as in most cases in Hong Kong apartments.
