PSS HEAD OFFICE
PSS is a social enterprise whose head office is based in Liverpool at Eleanor Rathbone House. The social enterprise supports adults who have learning or physical disabilities or challenges with their mental health.
The new kitchen based at Eleanor Rathbone House was to be used as a facility to teach how to use cooking equipment and practice preparing meals. The design of the kitchen was to be a hybrid style - with the look of a domestic kitchen but the robustness and durability of a commercial kitchen.
Hard finished wooden work surfaces were incorporated into the design alongside a heavy duty domestic underframe. Incorporated stainless steel work surfaces were designed in a rise and fall type making them accessible for wheelchair users. The finished kitchen is aesthetically pleasing and provides a very useful facility at Eleanor Rathbone House.
