The kitchen features a range of all-in-one Earth-friendly features

The kitchen is a big source of waste at home. This project by Marc Thorpe Design seeks to change that by bringing technologies together in a beautiful structural centerpiece. Pratt Institute students helped the architect develop solutions for the kitchen's biggest sources of waste. Instead of common composting, organic waste such as kitchen refuse are used to create biogas which fuels the kitchen's cookers and oven. Rather than sending water from the sink to the sewers, Thorpe's concept kitchen filters the water out and reuses it for hydroponic farming.

These systems are enclosed in a circular countertop, which also works as a nice dining table. The countertops are made of Caesarstone material, a sponsor of the project.
