The Lovell Beach House Kitchen Project was submitted to the Electrolux Kitchen Design Re:Imagine contest of 2012.

Schindler's 1926 masterpiece was an early example of open-plan living which the architect named Space Architecture. With the main family space occupying the large room facing the ocean - this being 1926 - the servant's area (and kitchen) was at the rear above the garage. With the object of the contest that of "re-imagining" an existing kitchen, Mick chose to explore how the Beach House could fulfill the early promise of open plan living by opening up the kitchen to the main living space.

The structure is constructed from a reinforced concrete skeleton with liberal fenestration and cantilevered terraces on two sides. While the exterior is understandably preserved from modification, the interior contains several built-in Schindler details and furniture pieces Mick wanted to feature and preserve with his concept.

A detailed illustration of the project is available in the pages to the right.
