The New Noma by Bjarke Ingels Group is now open

Bjarke Ingels Group has designed a series of buildings to house the new home for Noma, one of the world’s most acclaimed restaurants. Located within the community of Christiania in Copenhagen, between two lake, the restaurant is built on the site of an ex-military warehouse once used to store mines for the Royal Danish Navy. Interiors are completed in collaboration with Studio David Thulstrup,  which chose an open concept such that the restaurant’s individual functions are assigned to a collection of separate yet connected buildings.

The 40-cover dining room and adjacent private dining room are made of stacked timber planks that likens to neatly piled wood at a lumber yard. Guests have the opportunity to walk through each of the surrounding buildings and to have a feel of Nordic materials and building techniques: the barbecue is a giant walk-in hut, and the lounge looks and feels like a giant fireplace made entirely of brick inside and out.
