Summer Kitchen,Estonia | Urmas Muru and Peeter Pere

“It is actually a contemporary version of the old farmhouse tradition to cook outdoors in summer,” Pere continued. A sauna and pond, which developed ten years earlier, lay on the outskirts of the property. Since the center of the “social life on the farm had gravitated from the hearth to the more recently built sauna and pond…the new outdoor hearth was established there,” explained the architects. The new kitchen aims to be as different as possible from the sauna and preserve “the dynamics and homogeneity of the earth surface by… presenting it [the kitchen] as a geometric object.”
