Community Learning Kitchen

Spacious, versatile and accessible, the new community learning kitchen is a new programme for food based learning at the Jewish Museum London.


We transformed the linear space into versatile quarters: preparation, baking, cleaning, and eating. Each area is defined using lighting, furniture, colors, and finishes, creating a welcoming ambience reminiscent of a Jewish family gathering. Ovens and baking stations were placed in the public space to make it central to the visitor experience. 


The project followed a food-themed process, from ‘ingredient gathering’ in project initiation to ‘taste testing’ through optioning, ‘perfecting the dish’ via versioning, and celebrating practical completion with a shared meal.
