Chatham Intra Culinary Village
Proposal for a community led culinary school that aims to re-skill veterans living in the area and people recovering from substance use disorder. The design highlights the “alley-to-river” typology of Chatham Intra and reconnects the city to its river. Parts of the protruding land is chipped away and reused to create small jetties that allow people to walk closer to the river. A total of four buildings is introduced, each serving its respective purpose, including an oyster farm-to-table restaurant on a newly created pier. The existing building on site is readapted to become a market building fitted with a basement storage. A three-storey building houses most of the classsroom facilities as well as a community garden at the rooftop. The central kitchen building is designed to be disassembled in the future.
