A wood-fired community kitchen at The Farnham Pottery
Bring back the romance of masonry, fire and food to this site the bottle kiln gave us the inspiration and shape and details for the façade with a double brick soldier arch around the door of the oven and for a wood store below. With a metal band around its chest, reusing the original bricks from the site meant it would look timeless and truly at home. This surrounding structure encloses the oven which sits at a comfortable working height on an inner structure of concrete blocks. We had chosen a manufactured oven core imported in kit form from French oven manufacturer, Four Grand Mere, as their 120x fitted the oven’s corner position and gave us as a larger interior space.
