A must visit.
The project was conceived by Bjarne Hansen, founder and former CEO of MENU. As a hotel residence, restaurant, cafe, concept store, material library, creative work and event space, The Audo unites design, work-life, community and hospitality in one.
...The Audo as a concept is a unique place to experience elements of our built environment as a whole, where products from the worlds' premium design brands will engage in dialogue. - Bjarne Hansen.
The architecture team is led by Norm Architects founder Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and Norm Architects partner Peter Eland. The Audo's building is located in Nordhavn, Copenhagen and is one of the oldest in the area. Norm Architects chose to preserve the building's facade.
