Studio Elmo Vermijs was asked by Ester van de Wiel (initiator & curator) to develop the Buijtenkitchen. The former bake/cook house was taken as starting point and inspiration for the Buijtenkitchen. A small house which was used in the yard of a farm, there was a wood oven for baking breads, cakes, pies, etc. for the surrounding community or residents of the farm.
The Buijtenkitchen is a mobile kitchen (to be transported on a trailor wagon) in which a wood-burning oven has the central place. The kitchen will be used for dinners and workshops on location. In addition, it will act as a kitchen where experiments can be done with cooking on wood. Cooks (local, regional and national) are challenged and can use the Buijtenkitchen to gain knowledge and other ways of preparing and preserving. The ingredients in the immediate area can be processed in the kitchen. Pepijn Schmeink of restaurant Eendracht (in R’dam) is the first cook involved in the project. The oven is in agreement with him and stove builder Gerbrand Dros developed.

These arise from a social context in and the fascination for locations, spaces, (waste)materials, craftsmanship and constructions. The objects bring people together by asking them to act, participate or organize an activity. The projects are developed and built from the potential thatis present in an area.
