My Initial Gap.
An object that solves my "unfitted-for-short-people" kitchen problem with a remodeling project that presents the idea of low profile furniture that solves the gap issue, based on the concept that a good architectural or interior design does not need another artifact to function.
The gap selected presents a very real problem for us the short people from the tropic, here the average height is 1,70 meters in man and 1,60 in women, so when my mom who's height is 1,57 cm tries to get the utensils from the cupboard (or any women of the family) she has to use a staircase she hides behind the fridge, it is very uncomfortable when she's cooking because without it she cannot reach the crockery or the pans. I believe a good design does not need from another artifact to function.
My Refinement of the Gap.
A remodel project that build a better environment of a kitchen for people of short stature without jeopardizing the storage that already exists
Giving this five weeks so far, I'd realized that the problem is not only that of the reachable cupboard but is also the lack of communication between the family during dinner when eating, the serving hatch makes us seat side by side and not in front of one another and that really makes a difference in the social interaction between us, also there is the problem of the lack of preparing areas, they are all separated in three spaces from 40 centimeters wide each one, not enough space when cooking three to four things at a time, that's why the refinement of the gap.
