Refettorio Felix


London, 2017

Redesign of the historic St Cuthberts community centre to create a functional and beautiful home for Refettorio Felix, a new community kitchen, dining hall and drop-in centre that aims to reduce food wastage by using the knowledge of top chefs to create healthy meals for those living in socially vulnerable conditions using surplus supermarket ingredients. The refreshed interior provides a warm and welcoming spaces to bring the community together, and restores a sense of dignity to the table.

The project was conceived by Food for Soul, a non-profit organisation founded by renowned chef Massimo Bottura that fights against food waste and in support of social inclusion and individual well-being. Supermarket surplus is sourced by The Felix Project.
