Hospitality Design - February/March 2021 - 47

Chef Sergio Herman stands in front of Le
Pristine's theatrical open kitchen

Ceramics and linen wallcoverings showcase
Belgian craftsmanship throughout the interiors

(a second courtyard is notable for its soaring 33-foot-tall tree) establishing
a dialogue between food and fashion while also acknowledging " the
juxtaposition between two different time periods, " says Bundgaard Rützou.
At Le Pristine, Herman, who spent 25 years cooking at his family's
now-shuttered three-Michelin-star Oud Sluis in the Netherlands before
launching several different restaurants, melds Italian flavors with the
terroir of the seaside in his native Zeeland, bordering Belgium. " I wanted
Le Pristine to be like a party-[where guests] eat well in a nice ambiance
with good energy, " he says. Herman enlisted Space Copenhagen to animate
that vision based on the firm's previous work for Geist and the old Noma in
Copenhagen. The trio immediately established an easy rapport. " You need to
find a great connection to create something magical, " explains Herman. " It
was a fantastic moment to see their first drawing. "
The long, 4,790-square-foot space, which Space Copenhagen crafted
along with local firm Verhamme + De Vel Architects, is a layered
manifestation of Herman's dream. A showcase for smoked oak and the
wood-fired oven, the café leads to the dining room, bringing the Antwerp
chairs that Space Copenhagen designed specifically for Le Pristine together
with muted green banquettes.
A moody palette of sand, gray, black, and rust conjures the paintings of

Flemish and Dutch masters. Noting " a certain humbleness " that was part of
Herman and Verso's mission, Space Copenhagen was drawn to the works
of Renaissance-era artists like Johannes Vermeer, who " painted everyday
narratives, " says Bundgaard Rützou. " We were inspired by a compilation of
those historic references. " Bluestone flooring, ceramics, and wallcoverings
crafted from Belgian linen reinforce that " materials are very much anchored
in the area, " adds Bindslev Henriksen.
Numerous Belgian and Dutch artists and craftspeople aided that
mindful process, stitching the project together organically. " It felt like we
were laying out a puzzle and they were filling in the holes. It became a
patchwork-a collage more than anything else, " says Bindslev Henriksen.
For example, the striking reception desk, designed by Maarten Baas
and Bertjan Pot, exhibits an innovative light and clay technique, and the
translucent pink resin bar from Sabine Marcelis is further brightened by
her glowing orb installation. That piece complements Frederik Molenschot's
vivid blue sculptural depiction of Parmesan cheese wheels, a customized
trifecta of Rotganzen's melted disco balls, and a charcoal-on-canvas
illustration by Rinus van de Velde capturing the hum of restaurant life above
the open kitchen. " This restaurant is for Antwerp, " Bundgaard Rützou says.
" We had to turn the fabric of this city inside out. " hd
