We are proud to have been part of a recent project by world-renowned designer, Johnny Grey, and expert in ageing, Peter Gore, which saw them turn their vision for kitchens of the future into reality at Newcastle Helix.

The 4 Gen kitchen has been designed to meet needs across the life course, from young children to older adults and everything in-between, with emphasis on  “multigenerational” households.

Minitec was used in the prototype design with gantry frameworks at the rear of the work areas and the overhead support rail.

Johnny said,

Firstly a very BIG thank you to everyone for helping make the 4GK prototype possible.  We have now installed the kitchen at NICA Catalyst Building in Newcastle and although it’s not entirely finished – it’s a prototype after all – there is enough completed to allow us to begin assessing it with VOICE and begin building up data on behaviour and responses to the design.
