Who’s up for Gløgg…
A surprise stop on Melbourne Open House Day was Ikea Denmark House. We were strolling back into the city after visiting the Hellenic Museum and heading to the Myer Mural Hall when we noticed one of the many "look at me" "I'm open" and "In here" signs waving out the front. Tucked up on the third floor of a very traditional office block it felt like stepping into the middle of Copenhagen. The space is open, airy and bright and was a real surprise to us. We visited the meeting room and then explored ... Read More
