HÖST RESTAURANT

NORM-HOST-RESTAURANT-02

In the neighbourhood of  Nansensgade, close to the lakes of Copenhagen, lies Höst  a Nordic restaurant of rustic simplicity.  NORM Architects and Menu have managed to delicately balance the simplistic nature of the calm-toned, white-washed  interior with the warmth of raw wood, weathered repurposed materials and sheepskin. The space is effectively urbanised with the implementation of modern-style tableware, stools and chairs and industrial pendants.  NORM Architect, Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, explains ‘The theme has been to transform the feeling of eating outside on a Scandinavian farmyard in rural settings to an urban and more minimalist indoor context’.  The restaurant needs no decoration as the chosen materials and finishes speak for themselves.  The restaurant interior is making what once was old, new again – This is ‘the new nordic’.

‘We tried to see if we could find a balance where the interior, the dinnerware and the food told the same story, without it being too old-fashioned or too much of a theatrical backdrop’  (Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen)
