Designing a formal proposal for a LFS community kitchen Tang, Wen Zhe (Wilson); Wong, Cecilia; Mao, WeiWei; Yu, Ralph; Hsu, Yu-Chen (Jen)


There has been an on-going need from groups within the Faculty of Land and Foods for a kitchen space. In our specific scenario, we have been able to create an efficient and attractive community kitchen layout to fit that need. In addition, we have developed a proper management scheme for the kitchen itself. We were also able to create a list of activities the kitchen design could support, along with the necessary equipment and appliances needed to run a successful kitchen. Included in our proposal is also a layout of the kitchen’s floor-plan and financial estimates (including potential project sponsorships). Over the course of our proposal development, we have received several recommendations from the stakeholders within this project. The main advice given to our team was to expand the Agora Café instead of creating a separate community kitchen. This idea will be further explained within the following proposal. Furthermore, our team has developed some recommendations of our own for future LFS students and teaching staff if they are to be involved in a similar scenario. Such recommendations include a more efficient management scheme (which, again, will be more detailed in the following proposal).
