Egernvej in Copenhagen is home to Danish architect Thorkild Henningsen’s iconic multi-level townhouses designed in 1928. Henningsen was particularly interested in the affordable housing designs and concepts that prevailed in his era, earning him the nickname “The Father of the Danish Townhouse.”
This Nicolaj Bo kitchen is placed on the ground floor. The current owners removed a wall to open up the view both to the street and to the back yard.
The kitchen is made of solid oak, with high pressure laminate in racing green on the insides, visible in the niches of the high cabinet, in the hanging cabinet, and in the built-in magazine rack. The kitchen is centered around an L-shaped peninsula placed in the middle of the room, creating a space for guests to gather.
Other notable features include the integrated extractor hood, the pullout waste bin, the omnipresent and carefully jointed intersections, not to mention the bench acting as transition from the house entrance.
Tucked behind the cabinet fronts are spacious interlocked drawers with linoleum on the inside and solid wood, cross-lap jointed cutlery organizers.
This kitchen is part of the NB 01-series, with strong lines in the composition and all surfaces miter jointed, giving this genuine oak wood kitchen an altogether airy expression.
