The London List Abroad: Copenhagen’s Väkst restaurant creates a wholly-upcycled, idyllic greenhouse escapeThe London List

By Sam Bathe on 4 Jan 2017



Serving a monthly rotating Modern European menu, Väkst is an extraordinary restaurant furnished entirely from upcycled materials. Designing the interior in collaboration with upcycling company, Genbyg, restaurateurs Cofoco used a variety of salvaged wood, reclaimed furniture and life-worn garden pots to create an idyllic space that feels welcoming and alive. Stepping up into the restaurant through a would-be greenhouse, Väkst bases all of its princicple on sustainability and producing as little waste as possible and seats guests everyday, though Sunday is evening-only.

Väkst, Sankt Peders Stræde 34, 1453 Copenhagen, Denmark
