Redzepi called on man-of-the-moment; architect David Thulstrup to create interior spaces that reflected on Noma’s heritage. Thulstrup’s concept stays true to the external structure by repeating materials with an honest, simple and modern feel. Drawing on inspiration from residences rather than restaurants, his design incorporates oak, brick, steel, concrete and tombac in a playful approach.
Next to the kitchen, a barn-like main dining room is made entirely of wood. Including a counter made from a 200-year-old timber beam which was found immersed in the nearby harbour. Left deliberately stripped down, the dining room is designed for storytelling and as Noma’s seasonal menu changes, so too does the interior by rotating design elements and even adapting lighting to suit the outside.
