Transitions in kitchen living

Project overview

The kitchen is often the focal point within the domestic home; a material, social and psychological environment encompassing both public and private space.

‘Transitions in Kitchen Living’ (the TiKL project) aimed to examine the role, function and design of the kitchen within the lives of people in their 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s living in domestic and supportive housing in both urban and rural locations of England.

A cross-generational perspective focussed on historical and contemporary aspects of kitchen life - through biographical, ergonomic and visual research.
