Chef René Redzepi flew 100 or so of his Copenhagen staff to Sydney to create the food and service at Noma Australia, but he couldn't exactly transport the old fishing warehouse in which his Danish restaurant resides. Setting up for 10 weeks at the base of a new apartment building at Barangaroo South, Redzepi turned to Melbourne design studio Foolscap to convey his very particular vision of place.
When it came to bringing Noma Australia to life in Sydney, chef René Redzepi wanted the restaurant's interiors to be shaped by local influences as much as the menu was. Here's how his vision was pieced together with bricks and mortar, and more than a little rammed earth for good measure.
