The Leaning Towers

The iconic two 75 meter towers are striking – standing as a pair they lean out from a common base at a staggering 15 degree incline. This allows for nearly all 814 rooms to have views over the neighboring nature preserve and the city center just a few kilometers away. Being the largest hotel in the Nordic region, the hotel allows the Bella Convention Center to attract even larger international events than ever before. Moreover Bella Sky has reached to become an icon for the Ørestad – Copenhagen’s most modern area.

Dynamic and Innovative

The glass and aluminum facade reflects the angled movement of the building and underlines the dynamic urban pulse. The inside offers innovative features such as green walls, uniquely designed acoustics panels for the conference facilities, a custom made LED lamp installations in the foyer and 200 different combinations of architectural design in the rooms. Also, the hotel sky bar on the 23rd floor offers an absolutely stunning view and is public accessible.

Exclusive, yet informal

For furniture design, the best from the Nordic tradition has been chosen. The common thread running through the furniture, textiles and lamps are round organic forms underlining an exclusive, yet informal and warm atmosphere.  Synthetic materials were banned in the selection of materials for the rooms. Carpets are in wool, bed sheets in high thread count cottons, and there is a prevailing use of natural materials such as smoked oak and leather found throughout the décor.

Bella Sky opened May 2011.
