This project comprises the conversion of a disused caretaker’s cottage into a specialist cookery classroom for Brunswick Park Primary School’s new cookery programme. The formerly cellular ground floor of the cottage has been completely reconfigured to provide a generous and flexible teaching space that maximises pupil participation and interaction at all stages of the cooking process. Both the preparation tables and cooking island are centrally positioned to ensure students can always see and learn from each other while cooking.

The kitchen cupboards and table tops are made from a robust recycled plastic which is formed from reconstituted yoghurt pots and their foil lids. Within the surface finish of the plastic the yoghurt pots and foil flecks are clearly recognisable, allowing children to visually earn about recycling and reducing waste.
