The Changing Nature of the Kitchen
Mark Elmore, Head of Industrial Design at Fisher & Paykel Appliances, has been designing kitchen appliances for decades. He is particularly interested in the physical and architectural changes that have occurred, and in the sociological and psychological ways in which kitchens have changed over the years.

Daniel Witten-Hannah and Alex Munro's brief to architect Gerrad Hall laid out that they wanted a house with warm simplicity. Inside, the kitchen was of central importance; they wanted it to be the social heart of the home, simple and refined with close attention to detailing and honest materials.
