Street Kitchen’s new base in Testbed1, Battersea, includes a large commercial kitchen, geared to serving thousands of lunches each day, loaded into airstream caravans and transported into central London. The company’s vision is modern British cuisine made from local organic produce and eventually aim to grow vegetables and keep bees on the roof of Testbed1.
A unique hatch pokes out from under an existing stairway to serve simple and healthy bistro style dishes into the Testbed courtyard space. Clad in chequerplate aluminium, the front pivots open at lunchtimes, and visitors can now enjoy the food with a drink from neighbouring Doodle Bar, whilst looking around an exhibition in Testbed.
