Design Challenge:
The International Design Competition COOK8 has as its subject the design of an interior dining space for 8 people, of an area of 24 – 30m2. The space must include
• A preparation area (conservation, readying, preparation, cleaning, storage of foodstuffs and utensils.
• A consumption area
• A hygiene area (WC and washbasin, together or separate).

The aim of the competition is the formulation of new ideas on the design of a meeting-place for people on the occasion of the preparation and consumption of food as means of socialisation. What is looked for is the creative re-interpretation and overtaking of the usual approaches which are a function of the conventional building and management arrangements of catering premises (private or communal dining-room, club, commercial restaurant, café, cafeteria, snack-bar, fast food outlet, taverna, canteen, etc.).
