Architect Michael Grzesiak Transformed an Old Butchers into a Bar

You might not think that a century-old butcher shop would be the ideal setting for a hip urban bar, but architect Michael Grzesiak had the foresight to see just how beautiful it could be. Visitors to this elegant bar in the heart of Denmark would never guess that slabs of meat used to be cut up behind the counters, unless they take a closer look at the tiles on the walls.

In a cute touch, the owners of this urban bar decided to keep the vintage tiles, which feature pictures of sheep getting sheared and painted cows looking down on them from the ceiling tiles. These light-filled shots show off the new bar perfectly from all angles. Stats for Madeover Butcher Shops Bars Trending: Older & Chilly
