FROM THE 19TH CENTURY TO THE PRESENT...

Cooking and food preparation have always occupied a space in the dwelling history. The kitchen has evolved during the last century from a place of simple functionality to the so called “center of the home”. It is important to acknowledge how this space has always reacted to social transformations to be able to understand how the kitchen should adapt and respond to the social transformations of today.
