Being at the centre of home life, where food is prepared and hospitality emanates, every kitchen needs to be carefully planned in order to offer flexibility within the home space. Kitchen Culture provides a wealth of practical advice and new thinking, and its sumptuous photographs of contemporary kitchens and architectural plans provide visual inspiration for how to create wonderful kitchens within the shell of your own home.

Johnny Grey covers everything from fascinating context –for example, the historical model of the kitchen as being the fabric of family and domestic life- to practical, design orientated considerations of lighting, space and layout, body movement and storage in the creation of the ideal personal living and working space.

The book is divided into five sections: ‘Reinventing Home Space’, tracing the historical model of the kitchen and its transformation through cultural, culinary and social influences; ‘The Core of Kitchen Design’, case studies of real kitchens, focusing on key design elements for planning the ideal personal living and work space; ‘Communicating Between Space and People’, showcasing specific designs to accommodate sociable activities; ‘Design Analysis’, heralding the many design options for creating true space-efficiency; and ‘Whole Environment’, providing practical guidance to kitchen owners looking to extend their existing interior space and maximise natural light.

Featuring the striking photography of Alex Wilson on almost every page, Kitchen Culture is replete with visual inspiration to compliment Grey’s contemporary, ergonomic style and expert instruction.
