Post Commensuality

The act of commensality, to eat together, is decreasing in current day society. In the UK, 1 in 4 eat their meals alone.  Society is increasingly viewing eating as an individual act. Post commensuality seeks to reject this condition and proposes for 500 people to cook collectively and dine together within a kitchenless housing typology that responds to contemporary ways of life.

The project adapts an existing residential block in Pimlico, drawing upon previous kitchenless models from the New York Family Hotels, to Swedish co -housing schemes and the only kitchenless typology in the UK - the Isokon building.
