CLIENT Street Kitchen
SIZE 120 m2
Street Kitchen's base in TESTBED1, Battersea, included a
large commercial kitchen, geared to serving thousands of lunches
each day, loaded into airstream caravans and transported into
central London. The company's vision is modern British cuisine made
from local organic produce and eventually aim to grow vegetables
and keep bees on the roof of TESTBED1.
A unique hatch was designed to protrude from beneath a stairway
to serve simple and healthy bistro style dishes into the TESTBED1
courtyard space. Clad in chequerplate aluminium, the front pivoted
open at lunchtimes, and visitors could enjoy lunch with a
drink from neighbouring Doodle Bar, followed by a stroll on the
beach or a look at an exhibition in TESTBED1.
Street Kitchen at TESTBED1 closed when the warehouse site was
marketed for sale to housing developers in 2015.
