The Kitchen

The kitchen has long since been described as the core of the home. This has multiple connotations. Its social ecosystem involves as a space to gather friends and family, to share food and tell stories. Its emotional environment can be a place to relax while cooking, or inhale inviting food smells. It is a place in which we learn life skills from family and television shows. Being the core of the home, it also has a physical impact. Your kitchen could easily be removed from your home, and transferred next door, or down the street, to the next town or city even. Why is it that the core of our home is so easy to remove?

Kitchen typologies replicated throughout modern homes are all a variation of the same surfaces, volumes and appliances.
