Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky is an architect mostly known for designing what is known as the Frankfurt kitchen. Schütte-Lihotzky used a railroad dining car kitchen as her model to design a "housewife's laboratory" using a minimum of space but offering a maximum of comfort and equipment. Assigned to work with city planner Ernst May, the two brought functional clarity to Frankfurt’s housing units in what was called the New Frankfurt project.
