In the former home of the world-renowned restaurant noma, acclaimed chef and restaurateur Thorsten Schmidt in partnership with chef René Redzepi and Snøhetta have conceived a fresh approach to the iconic space. Snøhetta designed the interiors and new graphic identity for Barr, which opened its doors on July 5 on Copenhagen’s waterfront.
