Located just outside of the city, B3 helped transform Adina Apartment Hotels Copenhagen Otto’s Restaurant & Bar offering into the fresh and sleek Storehouse.
The hotel’s brief was to enhance the all-day dining offering, to a space that feels warm, cosy and inviting.
Hygge - a Danish word used to express a feeling or moment that is ‘cosy, charming and special’ – was the key.
Lighting played a key part in achieving the Hygge vibe. A centralised light feature made from multiple hanging pendants softly illuminates. This lighting allows the venue to change from daytime hangout to a destination bar.
The pre-existing marble bar front was revamped with a contemporary finish to create unity throughout the space.
The restaurant’s bar has a focus on wine and beer, to highlight this we added newly-made crates with blackboards set inside to showcase the drinks menu. Projection lighting ensures that the menus stand out.
We designed a concrete-look wall effect with hard-wearing timber dado.
Jet-black light fittings add a sharp and clean contrast to the minimal-style walls.
Banquette seating was made to feel lightweight but also to reflect the style of classic Danish pieces of furniture.
Functionality was a big consideration with the need to be able to easily change the table layout to suit the buffet breakfast in the morning, to smaller group and individual tables for the rest of the day.
'B3 are great F&B designers and are fun to work with. They make an effort to get their message across to all of the stakeholders in the project. B3 take on board feedback while keeping their concept intact. Finally, they understand the functionality and operational requirements of hospitality.'
