As a boutique hotel residence, restaurant, café, concept store, material library, work and event space, The Audo is an ever-changing yet always welcoming home for international creative individuals to collaborate, experiment and inspire one-another.
Approaching the project with great respect for the former merchant's building in Nordhavn – an area once dedicated to fishing and shipping and now characterized by newly erupted high rises, harbour front stores, cafés and public harbour baths all making Nordhavn a highly coveted neighbourhood in Copenhagen – the building’s neo-baroque façade from 1918 was preserved, while the interior has been completely restored and now resembles that of a collector’s home with curated art and design showcased throughout the space.
The Audo operates from the belief that knowledge-sharing drives creativity, builds healthier communities and can lead to higher quality work. The house and its name are built upon this philosophy, borrowing from the Latin phrase Ab Uno Disce Omnes, meaning “from one, learn all”.
Tucked away on the top floor, the Audo Residence is a 10-room hotel that offers understated and intimate loft-style retreats – each suite offering its guests a unique stay. These abundant rooms help you feel right at home with carefully curated products and works of art including bespoke furniture, books, ceramics and home accessories. Choose your favorite colour story and sleep in a cosy yet spacious room under the exposed wooden beams that recall the rich history of the building.
“There’s something so special about this place. Everything comes together and I find it that inspiration flows from all around. The dynamic atmosphere, the creative minds and the innovative way of thinking – the space encapsulates it all and reflects it in its structure.”
The Audo is open for everyone to explore, so go visit if you should ever find yourself in Copenhagen. Have a cup of coffee. Look around. Let yourself be immersed in the curated universe to find inspiration and like-minded creatives.
