Polyform Architects were commissioned by the Danish restaurant 'Noma' to create a nordic landscape outside of the building. The interior of the eatery, which was named 'The World's Best Restaurant' by Restaurant magazine for the fourth consecutive time, was designed by Space Copenhagen.

The restaurant has become such a tourist attraction, people travel just to take their photo taken outside of it. This exterior design was intended as a solution for this phenomenon. Polyform's Thomas Kock explains, "Head chef René Redzepi was not interested in putting up a red rope in front of the restaurant. He didn't want to exclude the curious minds but rather create a buffer zone around the restaurant, which gave visitors the experience of Noma and in this way included them."

The studio recreated the rugged nordic landscape by incorporating indigenous plants and generally mimicking the natural environment. Stats for Rugged Danish Landscapes Trending: This Year & Average
