South American restaurant

In 2014, Kilo and BIG worked together with Cofoco and Hz on Llama Restaurant & Bar, transforming a dark, impersonal basement into in an open space that’s generously connected to the city. The walls and floors are lined with handcrafted Mexican cement tiles, melding iconic design influences from Latin America with Copenhagen cool.

The interior design carries a number of main drivers — colourful tiles, black furniture, a vibrant green wall, and brass light fixtures — that together create a spatial configuration that’s conducive to linked experiences throughout the restaurant.

Llama’s menu draws on the flavors of the South American continent, inspired by Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Chile, and moving a bit to the North, to Mexico. The menu features ceviches, anticuchos, Uruguayan-style meats, tacos, and a list of South American spirits. But Llama is, without question, still rooted in the Nordic region, and aims to thoughtfully and sensibly marry this South American inspiration with Scandinavian products and recipes.
