Brutalist architecture echoes the raw vegan food in this cooking studio
The client had envisaged a multifunctional space where guests can be delighted with raw, stripped back cooking during a private dinner or workshop as well as a food photography studio.
Taking cues from the existing brutalist architecture, we set out to conceive an open-planned, flexible space focused on the visually arresting sculpture that is the cooking island. The stark exposed concrete and sharp angles of the volumes are softened by tactile plaster, patterned marble and a textured rippled insert that conceals the vestiaire and toilets.
