During the Designers on Holiday Residency in Gotland, Sweden I have been part of a collective who have designed and built an outdoor kitchen

A kitchen is not a kitchen without somewhere to keep vegetables cool, so during DOH 19 I designed an underground fridge that uses the cool insulating properties of the surrounding soil to store vegetables around 10 degrees Celsius. Luckily the campsite is not short of space so this was a good excuse to design an overly elaborate mechanism to raise the cylindrical stack of shelves where the vegetables will be stored to make it easier to access them.

This project is currently in progress and will be completed during the 2020 Designers on Holiday residency.
