A plywood storage wall retailers and displays furniture, elements and cooking apparatus at this Paris culinary workshop by architecture studio Septembre .
Developed for French culinary organization Kialatok, the space offers a range of workshops taught by worldwide chefs, but also serves as a venue for cultural occasions that vary from seminars to parties.
Due to the diverse purposes required from the area, Paris-based Septembre was briefed to create a versatile and adaptable setting.
“The clientele wished a versatile area that could be adapted based on the format of the cooking class and the various kinds of occasions they organise,” explained the team, whose past tasks incorporate a woodland cabin and a converted farmhouse.
“We desired to demonstrate the diversity of cultures and methods of cooking and consuming food,” task architect Sami Aloulou told Dezeen. “Our thought was to synthesise this selection into a straightforward architectural component.”
With this in mind, Septembre made the decision to current the cooking apparatus and ingredients on a customized-built plywood storage wall.

“The wall shows the diversity of the cooking lessons, not only via the exposition of the distinct objects used for cooking but also by the different ways to savour a meal,” stated the architects.
Purpose-developed shelves and hooks keep buffets, crockery and jars of spices – making it possible for the college students to effortlessly access what they require.
Trestle-style legs and table surfaces, along with modest blue-upholstered stools, can also be unhooked for additional seating and work surfaces.
“We created the seating and the wall itself,” explained Aloulou. “Then they were technically created and built by a carpenter of the atelier Fabric-K”.
Situated on the ground floor of a developing in the 18th arrondissement, the space characteristics raw concrete walls and floors that the architects had been keen to retain.
Massive windows run along the facade of the constructing, flooding the cooking location with natural light.
“We needed to preserve as much connection with the street level as possible,” explained Aloulou. “The neighbourhood had to be current to remind us of the social context.”
The wall divides the room into two sections: a public spot the place the lessons take place and a personal location containing changing rooms, an office and dry meals storage.
The architects opted for subtle supplies to highlight the colourful objects and ingredients, as properly as compliment the exposed concrete.
Light grey polished resin was used for the floor, while the central kitchen island is created from stainless steel.
