11th January 2018

The first post of the year always feels a little daunting. I’m itching for Copperline to include some new features – as in, features that aren’t about interiors – but I wanted to start the year with a gorgeous space, and when I spotted the photo above, well, you can understand why this interior felt like a great place to start.

This is the Nobis Hotel Copenhagen, which opened its doors in September last year. The building dates from 1903 and has a prime location for exploring the city next to Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen Central Station, City Hall Square and the renowned Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum. This landmark building originally served as the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music, and the 75-room hotel is the work of Swedish star architect Gert Wingårdh and his team at Wingårdh Arkitekter. Wingårdh describes the design as an “updated take on Le Corbusier. Danish classicism, which this building is a fine example of, is something special—more sophisticated, more stripped down than in Sweden.”

While highlighting the building’s handsome original architectural details and décor, the architects introduced timeless natural materials including marbles, stone, wood, and glass. Personally, I love this mix of grand period detail with pared back contemporary design in the selection of furnishings and lighting. The highlight? While any of the rooms would be a pleasure to stay in, special mention should go to the Nobis Suite with its extravagant ceiling detailing and chevron oak flooring offsetting the angular four-poster bed and Scandinavian furniture.
