The KITCHEN-HUB is a multifuncional kitchen space in Berlin-Schöneberg run by the organisation Über den Tellerrand e.V.. During the five weeks of the summer school a detailed usage concept for the space was developed together with the organisation, first pieces were then designed and built at Technische Universität Berlin. The core team consisted of an interdisciplinary group of students, refugees, volunteers and craftsmen.
The KITCHEN-HUB aims to become a space of coexistence and mutual exchange, where refugees are not only welcome but become active in shaping urban space.. Here people with refugee and non-refugee background cook, eat, work and think together.
The summer school was funded by the STO-Stiftung. It built on the experiences and outcomes of the design studio Refugees in the City: cooking with refugees in Berlin at Habitat Unit of the summer term 2015.
The table and chair modules consist of a welded metall steel construction, the table plates, cooking boxes and chair boxes are made from multiplex wood panels with glued joints.
