Community Kitchen


My 'Architectural Design' project focused on mental health in Canterbury and communal eating. My client was the Umbrella Centre, an organisation that helps people with mental health disorders. I developed a prototype which was a small communal kitchen where people could cook and eat together. I expanded this idea into a Community Kitchen, a place where people can cook and eat together on a larger scale, to improve wellbeing and community engagement in Canterbury.
