In the Danish capital, you will now find a new, unique hotel experience. Centrally located on Frederiksborggade by Nørreport Station, PLH Arkitekter has tailor-made a thorough renovation of a historic building from 1917. With respect for the property's history, character and surrounding architecture, the building has been transformed from an office into a welcoming, modern destination, where the hotel chain Scandic has now opened its ninth hotel in central Copenhagen.
With its many years of history, the property has served as everything from a luxury apartments, bank and menswear manufacturer to offices. Consequently, each floor was decorated differently, and the building has, among other things, been 3D-scanned to ensure an optimal, new floor plan in interaction with the existing construction.
“The work with Scandic Nørreport has been complex but at the same time incredibly exciting and rewarding. We have continually been reminded of the building’s history, which has appeared behind every wall and under every floor. Thanks to the good collaboration with our partners, we have, instead of tearing it down, given the building new life and created a contemporary environment built around the historical framework,” says Peter Rebild, project architect at PLH Arkitekter.
