Project type:

FOOD – nutrition, life, energy? . What exactly means food for humans now? Since the dawn time food has united humans because of the common hunting, food preparation and consumption. People gathered together around the full table to celebrate, to eat, drink and to create relations among themselves. And so it was born: the culture of cooking, which transformed the NEED into the ART of eating: feast for the senses.


You are entering the building, through the large hall and then You came to the red ornate staircase. The colour of staires are purposely red, because these stimulates our senses and encourage us to explore the world of cooking. The entire building is designed to act on our senses like the food is doing. Beyond the smell of the kitchen, colorful gardens and beautiful interior, You can also TOUCH and FEEL different textures –sensory architecture stays to Your disposal. There is a sensory path where you can go barefoot and enjoy various textures - soft like fruit and sharp and crisp as the husk.
