NH Hotel Group debuts in Scandinavia with Copenhagen outpost

by | 17 Oct 2021 | Design

Showcasing design by the likes of Arkitema, Henning Larsen, Krook & Tjäder and TBC, the five-star NH Collection Copenhagen hotel has now opened its doors in the Danish capital.

Occupying a historic waterfront building at the entrance to the lively Christianshavn district, NH Collection Copenhagen is full of clever sustainable features.

Harbourfront luxury lifestyle

Newly opened, the 394-key NH Collection Copenhagen stands out for its central location and comprehensive offering, including 394 luxurious keys, two restaurants, one bar, one lounge area and seven flexible meeting rooms accommodating up to 252 people. To further set it apart from the competition, travellers are met on arrival by a large wood and brass artwork by Danish artist Anna Bak, celebrating the building’s maritime history.

Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s relaxation room and make use of its onsite fitness facilities, bicycle-rental service and direct access to the waterfront.

Sustainable Nordic design

Before opening as a hotel, the property’s façade was renovated by ATP Ejendomme, Arkitema and Henning Larsen, all while respecting the original 1962 design by Palle Suenson. This prominent waterfront building was previously used for administrative purposes by the B&W shipyard.

The property places a significant focus on sustainability, with features such as a green sedum roof integrated into the design. Moreover, it uses seawater for cooling and employs intelligent light control and sustainable materials.

The hotel’s interiors have been designed by Sweden’s Krook & Tjader, with finishing touches by Spanish studio TBC. As a result, guests can expect to find a chic and calm ambience inspired by the harbour setting, fusing Scandinavian craftsmanship with warm eclecticism.

High-quality materials such as wood and brass meet warm shades and Nordic expression, with specially designed furniture throughout. Last but not least, large windows make the most of the site’s harbour views and fill the space with natural light.
