Kitchen facilities

The Community Kitchen is fully equipped and spacious with areas for demonstrations, cooking stations and tables for dining/ food preparation.

The main teaching area of the kitchen has 7 domestic cookery stations (one for a leader and 6 for participants, with space for people to work around both sides of the U-shaped layout – see design below), one of which is wheelchair accessible.

Our kitchen was designed by Claire Potter, an interior architect and award-winning designer who specialises in sustainable design to ensure we reduce our environmental impact. The kitchen includes a balance of quality, new kitchen equipment alongside recycled and reused materials. The design prioritises accessibility and flexibility – from specialist accessible cookery equipment to adaptable areas for dining and food preparation.
