Great views, beautifully served
The Nicolinehus building in the new Aarhus Docklands neighbourhood is a place that teems with life and buzzes with activity. The impressive building's upper floors, however, are reserved for peace and relaxation, where you can enjoy a leisurely meal or a good glass of wine.
Restaurant Tiende is on the tenth floor. On the floor above is a wine bar called Den Fede Drue. Nicolinehus is based on an architectural approach that uses two buildings that gradually taper upwards as a stepped construction, with roof terraces on top of the roof of the floor below. Fantastic views of Aarhus, the harbour and the forest unfold from the upper floors; views which will never fail to grab your attention as you ascemd to the tenth or eleventh floor.
The restaurant, which is run by the people behind restaurant Ferdinand, is open for lunch and evening meals. Service is also available on the terraces that look out over the bay and the town, respectively. The welcoming interior design is in the Nordic lounge style with wooden furniture, upholstered seats and lots of plants to create a homely atmosphere.
Both the restaurant and the bar upstairs are oriented in two directions, which makes it possible to create different environments in the same room. The ceiling features a three-dimensional, floating wooden installation that helps to form a cohesive interior design aesthetic. It creates lines that go in both directions to elegantly unite the impression of the entire room. This also allows lamp fittings and ventilation systems to be concealed.
Black Troldtekt ceilings hidden away beneath the wave-shaped profile mouldings is used to ensure good acoustics throughout the entire restaurant and bar. A dark wooden floor and long curtains also contribute to the warm, homely atmosphere. With a simple and inviting interior design, restaurant Tiende and Den Fede Drue wine bar have created a setting that is both relaxing and in contrast with the breathtaking view.
