Nærvær (meaning presence) is Copenhagen’s new wine bar & restaurant, located in Krøyers Plads with the water and the Inderhavnsbroen as a backdrop to the city’s light. The restaurant can only seat no more than twelve people, and the space is divided into different areas to help enhance the intimate experience.
Danish Norm Architects used a dark palette combined with warm materials and minimal lighting to create a cosy atmosphere. The place is full of character, and the custom lighting made by the Danes are a beautiful addition.
“With an interior design defined by an array of stone, wood and metal, the materials are all natural and have deliberately been altered in order to create dark and industrial surfaces that matches the mood of the place. This conscious focus on tactility brings a warm, material richness to the interior that naturally compliments the raw concrete walls and industrial framework of the space.” – Norm Architects
Because of the limited space, it is recommended to book if you are planning to visit. Nærvær is located at Strandgade 87 C, stuen, 1401 København K, Denmark. Find out more here.

The BYOH Matcha bar in Copenhagen recently got a makeover by Norm Architects and it looks so lovely and bright with its simple, white interior. The place is filled with items from Menu and has a lot of lovely green additions throughout to match the name perfectly.
Here you can get anything from healthy drinks and smoothies, to salads and sweet treats all with matcha in. On their website you can also purchase a variety of matcha ingredients and find a selection of recipes to create at home.
Väkst is a lovely & green restaurant in Copenhagen. In the middle of the restaurant there is a large greenhouse, built through the two floors of the space, created to transport guest into the sensation of a lush garden – in the heart of the city. Here guests are invited to an informal and Nordic dining experience. The menu takes great emphasis on seasonal vegetables, alongside barbequed steak, full-cooked fish and fresh shellfish.
Lightbulbs and sails are hanging from the ceiling and the floor is painted to look like a giant tablecloth, which together with all the green plants gives you the feeling of being at a stylish garden party!
