Denmark: Villa Copenhagen announced its opening yesterday, one of the Danish Capital’s first hotels fully designed around eco-luxury.
The 390-room hotel, housed in the former Danish Post and Telegraph office, offers luxury amenities that keep with UN Sustainable Development goals, and hope to create a link with the city as well.
Peter Høgh Pedersen, managing director of Villa Copenhagen, said: “We are delighted to reveal Villa Copenhagen to the public and are confident that the health measures we have in place will put guests at ease in this new era of travel. The vision behind the build was to create an authentic destination – for the many and not the few – that upholds three key pillars: contrast, conscious luxury, and happiness.”
The property retains the property’s 1912 exterior, with a variety of Danish designers working alongside London’s Universal Design studio for the interior. Many of the hotels colour palettes are inspired Vilhelm Hammershøi, a 19th century Danish master painter.
The hotel uses sustainably sourced materials and ingredients to make unforms for its staff as well as for all of its restaurant, committing to a low-waste, zero carbon footprint. Furthermore, amenities like the minibar, fragrances, and hotel stationery are all sourced from local businesses.
The hotel is also home to a private art collection estimated at around $2 million in total value. It features a wide variety of contemporary artists, both local talent, and more celebrated international figures.
This is not the only property to open in Copenhagen recently. Zleep, a select service hotel, announced the opening of their 13th property in Copenhagen last month.
