Bella Sky Comwell, designed by Danish architects 3xNielsen, is the largest hotel in the Scandinavian countries. It is a unique 23 floor building split into two towers with a 15 degree angle, allowing a clear view of the surroundings from as many rooms as possible. Evoking a Nordic aura, the hotel is designed to become Copenhagen’s newest landmark building.
‘The client wanted a Scandinavian cool look about the building, so we tried to make that from the outside to the inside. Outside it is outstanding Scandinavian architecture and when you come into the building, the rooms because of the angle of the building, has a special effect you can look out and you can look down from many of the rooms, so you sort of get the feeling that you are floating in the air. The special about the building is the leaning towers leaning 15 degree that is a lot more than for example the tower in Pisa it is only 4 degree, so it is 11 degree more. The reason why it is leaning is to allow as many rooms as possible to have a clear view out the window to the beautiful surroundings here and at the same time stand as a landmark for the area and for Copenhagen – that was our idea from the start of. If you are going to build such a big hotel – the biggest one in the Nordic countries then you need to have something extra – extraordinary and this extraordinary is not only the look of the building from the outside it is very much the interior too as we see here around. This is a design hotel. Design hotel from outside and from the inside as well.’
