Copenhagen: Under Knippels Bridge

You could be forgiven for confusing the name Rosforth & Rosforth with some illustrious Scottish lawyers firm, housed in prudent offices in Edinburgh’s Haymarket rather than the hip wine enthusiasts providing Copenhagen with biodynamic and organic wines from under the city’s very own Knippels Bridge. Since 2001, this novel location, literally on Copenhagen’s waterfront, has been supplying the […]

Back In The Pews

During my years studying at Denmark’s Design School in the 1990´s I spent many an hour in Copenhagen’s array of beautiful churches attempting to catch their perspective and a hint of their soul in my sketchbook.

In The Foyer

A day when the Gods decided to have some fun with Copenhagen, first by dumping fat wet snow on the city and then spicing things up by sending gushing cold blasts of wind from some distant hostile northern fjord.
