The Kitchen Skills studio building

The Cookery Studio is part of one of the most well renowned buildings which was recognized by English Heritage and listed as Grade II in 2007.

The Building itself, known as High Street Buildings, was erected in about 1896 to the designs of Alexander Robert Hennell, an architect born and bred in the area. Several other nearby buildings by Hennell have also been listed including the Jews Walk fountain and Forest Hill Library
The High Street Buildings displays Hennell’s “skill for quirky use of a variety of architectural motifs”.

The English Heritage advisors were enthusiastic about High Street Buildings, noting the “special architectural interest of their attractive, free Queen Anne style architecture, dramatic roofline, and presence in the streetscape” and remarking on the survival of “original features including three of the five late C19 shop fronts”
