Listed lab: Architects retrofit heritage site

07 : 03 : 2012 Flexible : Lab Talk : Laboratory

Copenhagen – Danish architect firm 3XN has transformed a listed building in the city into an experimental food laboratory for restaurant Noma.

Restrictions placed on the building prevented the architects from nailing or fixing anything to the walls or floor of the interior, so the space has free-standing storage cabinets that divide the area into an office, a laboratory, a staff area and a herb garden on wheels.

This is a great example of a retrofit for a heritage building. For more on how designers are crafting interiors to convey honesty and transparency, read our Flexthetics macro inspire.
