SWEDISH AND DANISH DESIGN AND HERITAGE COME TOGETHER IN THIS ESTABLISHMENT.
<b>photos</b> DESIGN HOTELS
Famed as a great design hub, Denmark has yet another style-savvy spot to boast of. The 77-room Nobis Hotel Copenhagen casts new light on a building formerly occupied by the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music – built in 1903 and neighbour to Tivoli Gardens – with interiors designed by Swedish architect Gert Wingardh. The grandeur and Neoclassical style of this historic structure is the perfect foil to the hotel’s contemporary and minimalist interiors.
Gert masterfully weaves the two eras; original architectural elements like ornate ceiling mouldings and marble staircases were preserved and restored, while modern silhouettes and materials – such as a monolithic concrete reception as well as wiry, clean-lined furniture – move in to update the space. In the Nobis Suite, Gert and his team also highlight its gilded plaster walls by pairing it with vibrant teal paint.
Guests are treated to the best of Scandinavian design, as rooms are fitted with icons such as CH25 chairs by Danish furniture mavens Carl Hansen & Son, rugs by Swedish label Kasthall, and minibar accessories by Danish designer Frederik Bagger. The all-marble bathrooms, where the characteristic deep gray look of Bardiglio Nuvolato marble lends a lavish ambience to the space, also come with amenities by luxury Swedish brand Byredo.
At the Neils Restaurant, a smorgasbord of Northern European cuisine and cocktails – created with ingredients sourced from Denmark, Sweden and Norway – awaits.
This 58,125sqf landmark building was designed by architect Martin Borch, who was the then Royal Surveyor in Copenhagen.
Each room is fitted with chevron-laid parquet flooring and white painted windows.
Nothing screams luxury more than an all-marble bathroom.
The grand staircase is one of the building’s original architectural elements that Gert and his team preserved.
While simply designed furniture were chosen, Gert introduced abstract prints in the rooms through the Kasthall rugs.
The hotel features various natural materials, from marbles and stone to wood and glass.
