The Result Of Disruption
Designing through disrupting the core, fixed parts of the home – the kitchens and bathrooms – resulted in the identification of three new typologies for organising the space. The first being ‘linear’, where space is organised by the activities that form the occupant’s daily routine. Each activity generates its own station, and is repeated as many times as it is throughout the day. The second is where ‘everything is a kitchen’ and the activities that surround cooking and eating are distributed throughout the space. The third typology is ‘kitchen-less’ – where urban life can reduce the kitchen to a food reheating facility or a surface from which to eat takeaways off. The kitchen can be a shared facility outside of the walls of the private home, used whenever is required, in order to free-up space for other daily activities.
