Studiomama has created a workspace test kitchen for a restaurant team in London.
The project responds to the team's need for a convivial, colourful, vibrant space that felt homely and inviting to work in; was conducive to creative group dynamics and provided space to think and create and experiment
Working closely with the OTK (Ottolenghi Test Kitchen) team, the brief was to design the space to could cater for three basic functions; firstly the test kitchen itself – which was to be extended and made suitable for filming cooking in action; secondly the library and studio section; lastly, was to design in a way that could transform into an event space.
The result is a fluid form of zoning the three different functions with an abstract bespoke floor design. A peachy pink sets out the entrance area and event space; yellow ochre is linked to the studio and library space and lastly, a grey anti-slip vinyl for the test kitchen.
