Client: The Russley Village/Simon Construction
Location: 73 Roydvale Avenue, Christchurch
Date: September 2019
Services Provided: Design, supply, and install of a complete commercial kitchen including appliances, benching, also the design of serverys, and supply and install of servery equipment.
Initially, Hostservice worked with The Russley Village to design the main kitchen to feed the residents at the village and cater for the cafe in the community centre. Later as more appartments and care suites were constructed, Hostservice were asked to work with the architects to design areas where food could be served to the residents, meeting food safety requirements whilst still maintaining an "at home" feel.
The "front-of-house" cafe area brings a warm and positive vibe to the community centre. Striking marble counters surround an FPG display cabinet laden with delicious treats. Behind the cafe, visible through a narrow pass in the wall, the busy commercial kitchen operates. Featuring a European Houno Oven, Blue Seal cooking equipment along with designated areas for dishwashing, baking, prep and storage, this kitchen is the hub for all things 'food' at The Russley.
The Servery kitchens provide a modern yet homely atmosphere in the dining rooms. Adventys undercounter induction warmers have been used to keep food warm while minimising the 'commercial appearance'. Apollo bar chillers create an eye-catching feature in the servery kitchens, while effectively keeping the drinks chilled. Electrolux premium double skin undercounter dishwashers clean the dishes to a commercial standard, whilst minimising noise in the dining area, and having an inconspicuous appearance.
