A few years ago Danish chef and author René Redzepi was just beginning to gain ground for his experimental restaurant, Noma, in the Christianshaven neighborhood of Copenhagen. Today Redzepi is a household name; his cookbooks are on the shelves of most serious kitchen libraries, his restaurant is internationally known, and his Instagram account challenging the average brunch-goer's feed. The star chef enlisted Garde Hvalsøe , three cabinetmakers and an architect working with Dinesen wood, to design and build out a custom family kitchen in his house in Christianshaven. A couple of years ago, we profiled the humble dining room in Redzepi's former flat and took note of a few things he kept during the move (Noma ceramics, an antique bench, dining chairs). Here is a look at the key elements of the chef's latest home kitchen. Above: Glassware and Noma ceramics are seen in the open storage kitchen island. Above: Redzepi requested a long kitchen workspace to span the length of the room. Above: Weathered brass fixtures blend quietly with oak countertops. Above: Details of the cabinetmakers' work. A custom extractor range hood was built by Garde Hvalsøe. Above: The kitchen opens out onto a light-filled dining area. Kitchen Above: The Induction Zone  from Grand Cuisine by Electrolux Professional is an induction cooktop with a glass surface. Contact Grand Cuisine for pricing and availability.   Above: The Combination Oven accounts for cooking in dry and wet heat with the option of using a steam generator. Contact Grand Cuisine for pricing and availability. Above: The Waterstone Fulton Suite Prep Faucet in blackened nickel is $1,115.20 at eFaucets. The faucet in Redzepi's kitchen is a custom darkened brass Fushion Square Faucet from Quooker, which is available to purchase in polished or brushed chrome. Above: A similar sink to the custom one in Redzepi's kitchen is the Burnished Brass Sink  from Officine Gullo in Florence, Italy. It has a brass edge and a drainer on the right side; $5,206.81 at Officine Gullo. Above: The kitchen is built almost entirely of Garde Hvalsøe's Dinesen HeartOak wood. The long floorboards and countertops are created from a single plank for continuous grain patterns. Contact Dinesen for pricing and information.
