Talk and book vernissage: how will we live in the future?
For almost twenty years, Archithema Verlag's architecture awards "The Best Conversion" and "The Best Single-Family House" have reflected the current living culture in Switzerland. In a panel discussion with prize winners, jurors and other architects, they will discuss what constitutes this culture and where the journey could go. Is there a need for more flexible housing? What happens to the huge stock of old residential buildings from the 1960s and 1970s? How do we make the Swiss building stock fit for the future? How do we develop floor plans that will still be valid in 50 years? These are questions that will be discussed with a high-caliber panel on the occasion of the Interior exhibition "New Spaces" on Friday, September 16, starting at 5:00 pm.
Discussing: Yvonne Rösch-Rütsche, winner of "The Best Single-Family House 2022" award, Lukas Lenherr, winner of "The best single-family house 2020", Dominic Meister, Dost Architekten, member of the jury 2020 and 2022
The panel discussion will be moderated by Anita Simeon Lutz, Dipl. Arch ETH, Editor-in-Chief of the residential magazine Das Ideale Heim. The panel will be followed by a book launch of the new architecture prize books with an aperitif. (Credits Archithema)

Some of our exhibitors will show furniture from Scandinavian companies such as Menu, Skagerak, Louis Poulsen, Fritz Hansen, Eikund... Scandinavia is known for good architecture modern, simple design. Therefore, our recommendations for the fall lead to Copenhagen, one of the design capitals of the North. Hotel SP34, right in the center of Copenhagen, impresses with its location and Scandinavian, minimalist décor. The owners' basic idea was to create a hotel with a personal atmosphere and interesting, unusual interior design - all icons of Scandinavian design. A classic is the Arne Jacobsen-designed SAS Hotel from the 1960s, which has been renovated in some style. The stay proves that the beauty and efficiency of modernism is still alive. Room 606, however, is the only room still in the condition designer Arne Jacobsen once created it. Hotel Alexandra also scores with Danish desin classics such as furniture by Verner Panton, Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner. Behind a historic facade lie rooms furnished with timeless Scandinavian elegance. Eleven of the 61 rooms are furnished with their most famous objects as a tribute to individual designers. (Credits SP34, jr, Hotel Alexandra, Smart Traveller)

comfort food - Copenhagen's best of
One of the highlights of Copenhagen's food scene - along with the legendary NOMA, of course - is the hip restaurant AMASS on a former industrial site on the edge of the harbor. Southern Californian Matt Orlando cooks up a mix of minimalist Nordic cuisine and Californian spirit in an old tool shed. In summer, picnic in the vegetable garden and enjoy the excellent fried chicken with bisquits, cole slaw and a chocolate chip cookie. The newest restaurant in the COFOCO (Copenhagen Food Company) family is HÖST, designed by design studio Menu and Norm Architects. The space is rustic-modern, and the cuisine is fancy and innovative. COFOCO and Trois Cochons are also highly recommended. For lunch, the new market halls are a paradise for slow food lovers. In addition to many catering specialties, there are exclusive food stalls with Danish dishes such as Hallernes Smørrebrød. And even if it is very difficult to book a table at NOMA - just don't give up hope! (Credits COFOCO, jr, AMASS, NOMA )

danish design in Copenhagen
Many Danish furniture companies have their flagship stores and showrooms in Copenhagen, displaying their sleek furniture in a distinctive setting. The minimalist furniture and housewares of the Danish brand Menu are presented in a new showroom designed by Norm Architects. It also serves as an office, café and co-working space. Located in the Nordhavn district next to the city's harbor, the office's sleek concrete interior is inspired by its rugged and industrial surroundings. Since 1872, Fritz Hansen has been synonymous with quality and great Danish design. At the store in Valkendorfsgade, the old Danish design principles blend perfectly with new and innovative ideas. The space feels like a modern home with a bright, welcoming Nordic atmosphere with natural tones and materials. FROST was founded in 2002 by Hans Jørgen Frost with a vision to create a new generation of home furnishing accessories and architectural hardware where Danish design tradition and functionality go hand in hand. The attractive showroom in Copenhagen opened this spring. (Credits Menu, Fritz Hansen, Frost )
