The Pantry is a community kitchen in Ballard that hosts a variety of culinary classes, dinners, and events. Over the years, it has become a beloved staple in the neighborhood. When founder Brandi Henderson approached Atelier Drome with a desire to expand her growing operations into a second classroom with additional prep space, we wanted to make sure we stayed true to the welcoming, intimate aesthetic that characterizes the original space while providing the added flexibility required by the growth of the business. The design features a swinging cabinet divider that allows both separate private classroom experiences as well as an open, communal configuration for larger groups and events. The new prep area also features a double-height pantry wall with rolling library ladder to maximize the available storage within the compact floor plan.
