Menu Space — Designed by Norm Architects
With the goal of building a community around Menu as a design brand, Menu Space is a new creative initiative aimed at bringing likeminded creative thinkers closer to the brand and encouraging them to share their stories, ideas and processes. Featuring a showroom, office and café, Norm Architects had the pleasure of helping this new approach to running a successful design business to fruition by creating a space for great ideas, beautiful design, powerful concepts and inspiration as well as openness, knowledge sharing, co working, and collaborations.
With the goal of creating a welcoming space where everyone can stop by – for a coffee, a meeting, or simply to have a close up look at the designs of Menu – the interior is inspired by the raw and industrial setting of the surrounding area. Located in the upcoming Copenhagen neighbourhood surrounding the harbour in Nordhavn, the space draws heavy inspiration from strong materials such as concrete and steel, which can be seen throughout the space. This use of natural and durable materials provides a beautiful contrast to the objects and designs that fill the plateaus, floors, and corners.
The idea is to keep Menu Space moving and ever changing. To have friends of the house and people we admire stop by on a regular basis. In order to do so, the interior is highly flexible, making it easy to adjust, modify and change the interior layout of the space. This ensures that the showroom, as much as the office and café, stays vibrant, creative and lively that meets the needs of neighbours, visitors, friends, clients, and designers.
