Designing a Fully Functional Outdoor Kitchen

Cooking and eating outside are not only enjoyable, but contribute to good health and a good mood. Outdoor kitchens and outdoor spaces are growing in popularity, according to architects.

The course will review the specifics for designing a successful and complete kitchen, including ascertaining the clients’ needs, assessing the site, determining the construction technique, specifying appliances, and making sure all the details of lighting, heating, cooling, and aesthetics are wisely specified. With intelligent and thoughtful design of a fully functional outdoor kitchen, you are likely to provide a place your clients will use and enjoy for many years.
