Redzepi & Bjarke Ingels

Culinary Residence


The search for powerful identifying images has made it increasingly usual for professionals of very different fields to join hands, hence the alliance between chef René Redzepi – owner of Noma, one of the world’s top restaurants – and the architect Bjarke Ingels, a fellow-Dane. The former commissioned the latter to design his new ‘intimate garden village.’ Subtly taking over a former military warehouse, built during World War i for the Royal Danish Navy, the project avails of a range of construction materials and techniques to come up with a reinterpretation of traditional Nordic architecture, which is always highly respectful towards the natural environment.
