INTERIOR 14 _ GAMMEL STRAND SHOP

As an integral part of Gammel Strand’s ongoing journey of reinvention, Archival Studies carried out first act of the art center’s physical transformation. The spatial redesign is approached with consideration to the existing resources and architectural heritage, which dates back to the 1750s, to create a genuine space that is open for new and changing opportunities.

KITCHEN 11 _ NORSE PROJECTS

EXHIBITION 06 _ RESET MATERIALS

Exhibition design for the large experimental show at the intersection of art and architecture:
Reset Materials – Towards Sustainable Architecture

INTERIOR 05 _ ART HUB

Art Hub Copenhagen’s spatial transformation points towards a general path for how recycling can be rethought in architecture. When resources are not consumed but regenerated into value-creating elements recycling is not a necessary evil but the very catalyst of form and intention. Thus, this project operates sustainably on two intertwined levels: conservation of both resources and Kødbyen’s distinctive character.
