Mountain Restaurant Björk
The design and materials are influenced by local Sami culture. From a distance, the restaurant is visible with an inviting entrance and outdoor area to the south, a building that is used on a sunny day as well as a winter’s day around the fireplaces inside. The restaurant’s name Björk (birch) which seats 80 guests on two floors will serve an international menu using local produce and has a partnership with a local Lappish microbrewery.
Statement of the jury
The interior, which consists almost entirely of wood, endows the restaurant with a warm, congenial and inviting atmosphere. The clear and simple design aesthetic is in keeping with the functional design of the building itself.
