Food courts over the years have served as culinary destinations for hungry Kenyan diners and families, with Nairobi’s Sarit Centre establishing the standard three decades ago. Food courts have generally kept the same format – 5 to 10 tenants huddled in a corner at one end of the shopping mall – but as shopping malls have evolved, so have the dining spaces.
In this latest installment of Tastemakers, Susan Wong speaks to a rising star in Kenya’s architectural industry, Morrison Wachira, to learn more about how food courts have evolved and what his latest project with Bowman Associates, The Karen Hub, will offer the discerning shopper and diner.
