The Audo - Copenhagen, Denmark
Even though it’s over 40 years old, MENU’s vision feels fresh and future-forward with its latest HQ move. The revamp takes it to Nordhaven, but this time, the public was invited to join. Understanding our blending worlds of work and life, MENU’s new HQ is a hybrid concept titled The Audo, consisting of boutique hotel, café, co-working space and concept store.
即使 MENU 有著 40 多年的歷史，但亦可透過它最新的總部而感到新鮮感及前瞻願景。同樣是 Nordhaven 港區，但這一次歡迎公眾參觀。現今世代混合工作與生活，MENU 新總部名為 The Audo 的混合概念，包括精品酒店、咖啡館、共享工作空間和概念店

Teaming up with Norm Architects, the 1918 building – a boathouse and Neo-Baroque residence - has been given a minimalistic makeover. Here, the Danish firm developed concrete flooring and walls and used warming brass accents to lift the industrial architecture. Meanwhile creative director Nathan Williams - from publication Kinfolk - was bought on board to ensure the design effectively delivered The Audo’s message. ‘This was once a trading post for fishing,’ he mused at the opening. ‘The modernised concept for this space hasn’t deviated from that. We are not pulling up in boats, not crating fish, but we are trading ideas, designs and sparking conversation in this space.’
與 Norm Architects 合作，1918 年的建築 - 原本是船庫及住宅 - 經過了簡約的改造。 以混凝土地板和牆壁作粉飾，並使用溫暖的黃銅裝飾來提升工業味道。與此同時，Kinfolk 創意總監 Nathan Williams 共同參與，以確保設計有效地傳遞 The Audo 的信息。他說「這裡曾經是海產交易站，這個空間的現代化概念並沒有改變。我們不再拉船來，也不再裝魚，但我們在這個空間裡交換想法、設計概念和對談」
