Lucknam Park Cookery School
Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa originally approached Stephen Graver in July 2011 with the premise of whether we would like to become a ‘supplying partner’ of the soon to launch Cookery School. The construction of the furniture had to be of the highest quality, not just in appearance but also durability as the Cookery School would be taking up to fifty people a week. For the kitchen cupboards the chefs wanted the oak drawers with the cluster oak panels which they first saw in our studio and so we complemented these with 30mm granite work tops. The brief was to create workstations for ten people, two at each station, plus a station for the chef for demonstration purposes. During the design process it actually worked out that twelve workstations suited the room better. Each area featured an oven, hob, stainless steel sink and storage drawers. Stainless steel plinths were added for extra durability in a commercial environment. Fhiaba fridge freezers were chosen on the basis that they could be switched from fridge freezer to all refrigerator, this gave the chefs more flexibility depending on what dishes they were creating.
