A Greenhouse Restaurant
A Greenhouse Restaurant In Copenhagen
The newest creation of Copenhagen-based restaurateur Torben Klitbo. Väkst (translation - growth) immerses diners in "a lush greenhouse experience in the middle of the city."
Let's take a look at what's on the menu:
Using recycled materials, Rasmus Fex chief designer and team created an indoor greenhouse to cover a stairwell that leads to the restaurant's basement.
The shelves are made from recycled file drawers and the countertop is constructed of floorboards from a factory. For lighting, old milk cans were transformed into pendants.
Much of the furniture and building materials are salvage; Genbyg also sells a wide selection of used doors, windows, and flooring. A Nordic menu changes with the seasons; current menu items include squid with baked cabbage and clam sauce, a salad of grilled lettuces, and fried trout. The emphasis is on the local, seasonal ingredients.
"On the restaurant's upper floor thriving plants, sprouts, and leaves let in light from the large windows facing St. Peter's Straits. The restaurant's heart is a large greenhouse that is built up through the room two floors." - Cofoco
