After 10 years of being up and running, René Redzepi'sNoma restaurant in Copenhagen is getting a complete kitchen makeover.
This summer Noma's existing kitchen will be demolished entirely and rebuilt from scratch with the goal of increasing space and designing a more comfortable and comunal environment, according to the restaurant's blog.
The new 328-square foot kitchen will feature sleek working stations for plating and prep, as well as new cooking stations outfitted with modern stove tops and ample counter space, as you can see in the 3D rention below.
Belgian design company Maes Inox is in charge of the renovations which will take place from July 1st-20th. The restaurant will be closed for July and reopen on August 1st. Here are the blueprints of the project:
When Noma first opened back in November 2003 it only had four gas burners and three chefs and two apprentices. Now, it has a kitchen staff of nearly 50 who prepare exquisite meals based on local and foraged ingredients like ants and bee larvae.
The small space never seemed to impede the restaurant's progress. Noma has two Michelin stars and was voted the world's best restaurant for three years. It now ranks second on the 2013 The World's 50 Best Restaurants list sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna.

Now a three-Michelin-star restaurant, Noma has changed, but not necessarily on the plate. According to Kenneth Foong, it's all about the way the team works, which is closer to a tech company than a traditional restaurant. Read our exclusive interview with Noma's head chef.
