Les Trois Cochons
Thursday 31 Aug 2017
Les Trois Cochons designed by the Danish company KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri for Cofoco (acronym for Copenhagen Food Consulting).
Located in Værnedamsvej, the hippest street in Copenhagen and a very lively street. Linking together two neighbourhoods; Vesterbro and Frederiksberg, and with a traffic chaos that have become a part of the charm. In the past known as “The Butchers’ Street” (due to the large number of butchers on the street) but today people go there to eat breakfast, shop and in the evening, dine and drink wine. The French School are placed in the middle of the street and because of that, and the fact that all the cafés, delis and restaurants have a French atmosphere, the street is also known as “Little Paris”. The window tables are front row seats to the busy life of Værnedamsvej. It is a prime location to be a part of that street, and Cofoco know that their guests want to follow the street scene.
The building was formally a butcher’s shop called “Slagter Ryholt” (1907-1999). Cofoco have kept some of the atmosphere with the vintage green tiles on the walls, and they still welcome their guests with the custom mosaic tiles and checkerboard showcasing the butchers name “Ryholt”.
KBH Københavns Møbelsnedkeri is a local company committed to the craft of making handmade furniture. Cofoco needed someone who could combine the historic elements in the building with new, long lasting furniture that already had a story to tell, the moment they arrived. KBH chose to combine their own designs in dark fumed oak and brass with classic, curvy Thonet chairs, marble table tops and leather sofas. Everything is custom made and amazingly looks like it has been there forever.
To meet a certain standard of hospitality and the requests guests may have, Cofoco have created a darker, chambre séparée in the basement. The atmosphere is more intimate with no daylight, where cocktails are served, host wine tastings, private dinners, and meetings.
