SHOWROOM

GARDE HVALSOE


Copenhagen, Denmark 
2019
Architecture and interior design of a flagship showroom and office for cabinetmaker Garde Hvalsøe in Copenhagen, Denmark. Applying a residential approach, the open plan space in a former car assembly workshop is set up as ‘homes within the home’ to showcase craftsmanship and many bespoke possibilities from kitchens, to walk-in closets and a wine room. Existing concrete columns set the axis while custom-designed floor-to-ceiling shelves act as spatial dividers. The entrance is defined by a monolithic pavilion-like architectural structure in dark smoked oak that creates a transition between the outside and the calm space within. Custom furniture includes a 12-seater table of Dinesen ash planks stained light blue, metal and stone tables and there are four custom-designed and digitally fabricated lamps, three in aluminum and one in oxidized copper.
