Community kitchen in refugee’s facility in Gabčikovo

The goal of this structure was to design and build a small pavilion that can focus on the social and cultural act of cooking and eating together. This helps to establish practice that can anchor the refugees to a new place, and eventually build a neighborhood and to offer spatial gestures that support the family activities and nurtures the local community. It is important to help aid and facilitate for traditions and social gatherings to find place also within the refugees centers.
