Text description provided by the architects. The overall vision was to create a space with a design that surrounds the Nordic kitchen to the dual atmosphere of city and garden - urban gardening. The idea was to create a vivid and organic space, as a garden party.

Plan 2

The heart of the restaurant is a large greenhouse, built through the two floors of the space, thereby transporting the guest into the sensation of a lush garden. The vision was to create a particular ambience, reminding you that you are seated right in the middle of the underground of old Copenhagen - just like plants live partly underground, so does the restaurant.

The restaurant is built on principles of environmental sustainability.
Using recycled materials not only has a positive environmental impact by reducing waste, it also offered the designers and architects unique and historical materials that adds on to the authenticity.
