Norm Architects have created the latest sweet spot in Copenhagen for close and intimate gatherings. Nærvær, meaning “Presence", is about exactly that — the thing that we are all longing for; time for each other, being present and making eye contact. In its essence, Nærvær is about being in the moment, being present. With the ambition to create a local wine bar and restaurant emphasised by an intimate and cosy atmosphere that underlines a sense of presence, Nærvær is located in a fairly new and contemporary building. Situated in a prime location of Christianshavn overlooking the canal with a beautiful view Copenhagen's old city centre, the restaurant hosts a local winebar as well as an intimate and high-end gourmet restaurant with seating for no more than 10 people.
“Paying respect to the existing features of the space and surrounding area, the colour palette reflects the exterior of the building, bringing a dark and warm spectrum of colours into the space that intensifies the intimacy.”
