A former car assembly garage in central Copenhagen has been transformed into a calm space with a residential feel in a carefully executed interplay of intimate and more expansive scales that showcases the wide range of interior solutions offered by Garde Hvalsøe, from walk-in closet to kitchen, from wine room to hallway.
Almost hidden in a classic Copenhagen backyard, the showroom has an understated exterior. But upon entering the space, one is swiftly taken into the very essence of Garde Hvalsøe and a tale of life and craft. An architectural insertion made completely in smoked oak planks functions as entrance and custom-made wine room, while bespoke floor-to-ceiling shelving units act as room dividers throughout the space. The walls have a white structured surface and all the windows are covered up with white fabric, creating a monolithic and neutral setting.
The use of wood, especially prevalent in the entrance design, emphasizes the core of the company: honest materials of the highest quality, traditional craftsmanship and high-class interior designs that are made to last a lifetime. While showcasing the signature Garde Hvalsøe product range, the new space also features the iconic Lundgaard Tranberg Model in Douglas wood with a stainless-steel tabletop, a combination where the bright wood strikes a warm contrast to the cool steel surface, creating a contemporary look. Also on display is a new Garde Hvalsøe design, a wall shelving system made of stone with custom-made raw steel shelves.
The showroom is divided into open spaces, closed spaces and semi-transparent spaces by means of custom-designed space-dividing elements incorporated into the rhythmic structure of the existing columns of the former car assembly garage that now invites visitors to explore and experience materials, colours, structures and design. Custom pieces include freestanding storage units, a minimalist 12-seater table made of ash planks stained light blue, metal and stone tables which complement a specially curated selection of vintage pieces and new furniture pieces designed by David Thulstrup.
