Brigade Gallery & Café

Vesterbrogade 75, 2020

Brigade is a gallery and art advisory based in Copenhagen. Brigade works with contemporary artists and clients from around the world to produce unique and tailored projects and promote exhibitions, with a keen focus on supporting emerging talents.
Atelier Axo was given the task of renovating and designing the ground floor, which was to be merged with the neighboring boutique space. The new space functions as a gallery shop, both with books, magazines and various art objects and prints, as well as a small cafe.

Instead of working with a typical cafe setup with various small tables, a long table has been established that functions both as a common work table but also as a kind of dining-living room typology that provides a relaxed atmosphere. The primary materials are raw and honest, such as concrete floor, oiled oak and steel. In addition, the space has been decorated with vintage chairs, special ceramics along with rice lamps, adding warmth to the space. The specially designed built-in bookcase and archive drawers gives the gallery an opportunity to store and exhibit different types of objects and print editions.
