The building’s facade has been thoroughly renovated and redeveloped by ATP Ejendomme, Arkitema Architects and Henning Larsen Architects, with respect for architect Palle Suenson’s original 1962 design with its clean shapes and straight lines.
NH Collection Copenhagen has a strong focus on sustainability. This is evident in the green sedum roof, use of seawater to cool the building, intelligent control of light and indoor climate and choice of sustainable materials. A large part of the concrete structure has been preserved and the facade stones are cast from the materials from the interior demolition, shaped into the same look as the originals.
Upon entering, attention is immediately drawn to the large art-piece of danish artist Anna Bak. Made of wood and brass, it reflects the building’s maritime history, as a former administration building for the shipyard B&W.
The chic and calm interior is inspired by the industrial and cosmopolitan atmosphere of the city and its lively harbour. A warm, friendly, and eclectic mood is united with Scandinavian craftsmanship and exclusivity, using high-quality materials such as fabrics, wooden and brass details. Styled in warm shades with a Nordic expression, attention is paid to details such as herringbone tiles, elegant colour play in the bathrooms and specially designed furniture throughout the hotel. The large windows, in the rooms provide a large amount of natural light, and many boast views of the stunning harbour.
The interior was designed by Swedish design firm Krook & Tjader with finishing touches by the Spanish interior and architecture studio TBC, which has designed the interior for many other NH Collection hotels such as NH Collection München Bavaria and NH Collection Amsterdam Flower Market.
