Built completely out of upcycled materials, Väkst is the youngest brainchild from Cofoco, the restaurant group behind other Danish eateries such as Höst, Llama and a ferry-restaurant named Sagafjord. Housed inside a three-storey building on Copenhagen’s Sankt Peders Stræde, Väkst was designed by upcycling company Genbyg, (which supplies salvaged wood, reclaimed furniture and other materials through its online store) whose designers used a variety of different materials, each with its own history and aged charm. For example, the shelves behind the bar were made using drawers from the National Bank’s archive, while the bar itself is made of old Swedish scaffolding planks. Based on the principles of sustainability and reusing materials for the sake of producing as little waste as possible, the restaurant’s Nordic greenhouse feature further enhances this principle, through creating a garden party atmosphere right in the middle of the busy city.
