Morristown-Hamblen High School East Culinary Arts Classroom
Morristown-Hamblen Schools committed to a “next level” realization of their Culinary Arts program at East High School. The room, part of the original school building’s kitchen area with much of the required plumbing and waste connections in close proximity, is zoned for instruction on one side and the functions of preparation, cooking, and cleanup on the other side.
The two zones are completely open to one another spatially but are demarcated in the overhead plane by an orange soffit that runs the length of the room. Ancillary spaces include walk-in freezer/ cooler, dishroom, storage, and instructor office. A combi oven, charbroiler, six-eye range, fryers, and a braising pan are located beneath a commercial hood, while stainless steel residential induction ranges are centerpieces of the four student prep areas.
White subway tile walls with zones of glass marker boards, durable epoxy resin flooring, and retractable power cord reels at the student instruction tables all contribute to the aesthetic, functionality, and feel of a professional kitchen.
