Drawing inspiration from a stylish and incredibly cool hotel!
In a city that doesn’t cease to impress us with its aesthetics, Nobis Hotel Copenhagen opened its doors and instantly became a favourite among modern travellers. Housed in a historic 5, 500 square-meter landmark building from 1903 that used to be the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music, Nobis Hotel Copenhagen offers a unique ambience and a remarkable period architecture.
A tour at Nobis Hotel Copenhagen
I was there on a winter day for a cocktail at Niels bar and on that occasion I was offered a tour at its immaculately decorated public spaces. I also saw some of its elegant rooms furnished with mid century pieces as well as sections that were still under construction like the atmospheric penthouse floors that used to be practice rooms for violin and cello players and now are going to turn into loft suites.
It is star architect Gert Wingårdh and his team at Wingårdh Arkitekter that were tasked with overseeing the evolution of the property and did a marvelous job.
The decorative style of Nobis Hotel Copenhagen
Nobis is now a perfect example of combining old and new.
The building’s imposing sense of space and the elaborate, elegant detailing gives the interiors a natural grandeur. These neoclassicist interiors meet classic design from modern and contemporary times, combined with playful and sophisticated additions as well as some unexpected twists.
I loved the soothing green and blue tones on the walls of the rooms, the chevron-patterned wooden parquet floors and of course the a magnificent main staircase which looks as it was during its first life. The grey marble bathrooms in the rooms also looked awesome. The type of marble is called Bardiglio Nuvolato and it is a material characterized by its fine-grained, deep gray, cloudy look. Pure bathroom goals!
