The Audo design

By Emma Campbell

The Audo is the brainchild of an extraordinary collaboration between renowned Danish design brand MENU, the visionary Nathan Williams of Kinfolk magazine, and the acclaimed Norm Architects. It stands as a groundbreaking creative destination, a unique hybrid space that seamlessly blends the functionalities of a hotel, restaurant, cafe, concept store, event space, and showroom into a singular experience.

The modern hotel lobby transcends its traditional role, becoming a multifaceted haven that caters to diverse needs and desires. It offers an immersive experience where guests can find solace, connect with others, and appreciate the beauty of art in a relaxed and unpretentious setting. The hotel lobby has become a destination in its own right, providing the best of everything - a place where you can escape, indulge, and be inspired, all within the welcoming embrace of its creative spaces.
Nestled in the charming Nordhavn neighborhood of Copenhagen, The Audo finds its home within a historic industrial building that holds a rich heritage dating back to 1918. This unique location adds an intriguing layer of character to the overall experience, blending the charm of the past with the contemporary vision of The Audo.
The rooms within The Audo exude a nude color palette, each carefully curated to create a distinct atmosphere. Some rooms embrace lighter tones, with a gentle interplay of pale beige and sand hues, evoking a sense of serenity and warmth. Other rooms showcase cooler greys, offering a sophisticated and calming ambiance.
The accommodations at The Audo cater to a variety of needs, offering both standard rooms and suites. A notable feature that defines each room is the elegant simplicity of the wooden panelling and the allure of the leather headboard. These elements bring a sense of natural warmth and craftsmanship to the spaces, creating an inviting and cozy environment. 
The attention to detail is evident throughout, with thoughtful touches like carefully selected books and captivating artwork adorning the walls, adding a layer of intellectual and artistic intrigue.
Whether you choose a standard room or indulge in the lavishness of a suite or the Penthouse, every space at The Audo is thoughtfully crafted to offer a distinctive experience. Each room becomes a sanctuary of comfort and aesthetic pleasure, inviting guests to relax, rejuvenate, and immerse themselves in the unique charm of The Audo's design ethos.
