The Culinary Platform will act as launchpad for young chefs

Kimmel Eshkolot Architects has unveiled a luxury dining space to promote young chefs.

L28 Culinary Platform is Israel's first “chef accelerator” restaurant in Tel Aviv offering chefs who would not normally have a chance to open a restaurant take up residency every six months.

The first chef to explore their own culinary concept is Shuli Wimer. Chefs are provided with laboratory conditions and mentoring by professional staff.

L28 is housed in the the HQ of Start-Up Nation, an non-governmental organisation whose mission is to connect the world to Israeli innovation.

The architects' interior includes a double-height space emphasized through the installation of high wooden boards that fold and separate the the various seating areas through a scrolling curtain.

A street-facing entrance features a raised platform for lounge meetings while internal seating area can be seen from all angles and frames the open kitchen.

Above the kitchen, rests the gallery and private room for events. L28's interiors and finishings are based on natural and warm materials.

Wooden cladding is featured prominently in the ceilings and furniture, while vegetation grows along an installed green wall and vertical agricultural planting in front of the kitchen.

The visual scheme combines with the neutral materiality of a smoothed concrete floor made of resin and black steel.

An urban farm was developed on the roof of the building that serves in the restaurant's farm-to-table setup, along with spice plants in the green wall for use in the beverage bar. 

The design team included Etan Kimmel, Limor Amrani, More Gelfand, Yoav Ronat, Corvin Matei.

Orly Avron Elkabas handled lighting design for contractor A Weiss and project manager Yaron-Levy.
