The ceiling of this Copenhagen restaurant is made from repurposed wooden pallets. \”Normally, you have a rendered ceiling and wooden floors: we wanted to turn this idea upside down,\” says Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects, the studio behind the design. The timber was treated with a fireproofing fluid to preserve its original patina. If you plan to use reclaimed wood to clad the ceiling in your own home, don’t forget about your acoustics. Here, the boards have been mounted with a slight distance between them and insulation above to create a softer sound. For a good range of reclaimed pallets, priced at about 60 per cent of the cost of new timber.
