Designer Gert Wingårdh transforms Royal Danish music hall into grand Nobis hotel

Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh has completed a 77-room hotel within the early 20th century home of the former Royal Danish Conservatory of Music.

The 5,500sq m (59,200sq ft) building, built in 1903, has become the first property outside Sweden for hospitality company Nobis Group. It is located in the heart of Copenhagen, close to the town hall square, National Museum and the Danish Design Center.

Wingårdh and his eponymous design studio Wingårdh Arkitekter sought to pay homage to the building's roots while adding signature touches. Original architectural details – such as the grand staircase – have been preserved and restored, alongside contemporary details using marble, copper, stone, hard oak, and glass.

They have also created a new restaurant, called Niels, designed to stand out visually with a façade of glass and copper plates along with strategically placed crossbars that pay tribute to Le Corbusier’s famous La Tourette Dominican monastery.

“An inimitable Scandinavian style pervades the restaurant and public spaces and is continued in the 77 rooms and three suites, creating easy, uncluttered spaces for relaxation,” said Design Hotels, the hospitality firm representing Nobis.

“Each of the individually sized rooms, with soaring ceilings and original detailing, are painted in soothing green and blue tones, and all have chevron-patterned wooden parquet floors and high windows with crossbars as centrepieces.”

Rooms are outfitted with classic Danish furniture from Carl Hansen & Søn, rugs come courtesy of Swedish brand Kasthall and the bathrooms are outfitted in Bardiglio Nuvolato marble.
