Swedish and Dan­ish de­sign and her­itage come to­gether in this es­tab­lish­ment.

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.

BE­LOW Each room is fit­ted with chevron-laid par­quet floor­ing and white painted win­dows.

TOP RIGHT While sim­ply de­signed fur­ni­ture were cho­sen, Gert in­tro­duced ab­stract prints in the rooms through the Kasthall rugs.

ABOVE Noth­ing screams lux­ury more than an all-mar­ble bath­room.
