Fabbrica Rotterdam [2] has a similar layout but the difference between that restaurant and the new one in Bergen lies in the materials. Whereas Rotterdam is shiny and glittery with massive chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, the small pods [3] in Bergen are lined with unfinished timber that have a more authentic appearance, and are illuminated with less flashy lighting.

The floors are also made up of natural materials [4], wood used to fuel a gorgeous tile-covered oven is stored openly in stacked metal crates, and piles of materials are saved by displaying the lighting infrastructure on the same containers instead of hiding them behind another wall. Daylighting [5] beams into the restaurant through a tall arched window, which our friends over at Knstrct believe gives the establishment a “greenhouse” feeling [6]. We love the direction in which Tjeb Studio is heading: classy but simple and close to nature.
