Alchemist restaurant Copenhagen by Studio Duncalf features digital ceiling to create immersive experiences for diners

Our challenge was to bring this vision to life and create a genuinely unique environment to showcase this incredible concept.
– Mike Duncalf

London-based interior design firm Studio Duncalf has designed a new Alchemist restaurant in a former industrial warehouse that previously housed boat-building and set design workshops in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Studio Duncalf split the 2,500sq m (27,000sq ft) warehouse into a number of different rooms, with the aim of "taking the diner on a journey through a sequence of different spaces each with a different ambience."

Guests enter the restaurant through a 3m (19ft)-high custom-made and remote-controlled door. The gallery space they come into first is designed to be flexible and has a digital ceiling so that immersive experiences can be created for diners.

The main wall of the gallery raises to reveal the next space. Guests move through a 10,000-bottle, three-storey wine cellar, upstairs and over a glass-floored bridge into a room with 18m (59ft) diameter dome ceiling onto which moving images are projected.

A final lounge space with an open fire and a tea bar is accessed via a lift, giving the impression to guests that they are floating above the dome. Guests leave the restaurant through a door hidden in the brickwork.

Mike Duncalf, director of Studio Duncalf, said: "It was clear from the first meeting that Rasmus had a vision for what he wanted to achieve. An experience which was a blend of theatre and social comment underpinned by innovative cooking of the highest quality. Our challenge was to bring this vision to life and create a genuinely unique environment to showcase this incredible concept."

The project was commissioned in spring 2017 and was completed in July this year.
