With no less than 2,000 m² of solar panels integrated discretely into the facade, the CO2-neutral hotel and conference centre has
a carefully wrought green profile, and in 2010 Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers won the Ecotourism award as the world’s
Dissing+Weitling designed the 25-floor hotel with several integrated green initiatives. The hotel exploits groundwater in Denmark’s first groundwater-based cooling and heating plant, and with the impressive solar installation this provides significant energy savings. Our architecture underpins the hotel’s own strategy to be "a sustainable role model".
Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers has 365 rooms, a sevenfloor conference centre, a ballroom with space for 800 guests and underground parking. Immediately adjacent to the tower building is a 10-floor, 9,500 m² office building, also designed by Dissing+Weitling, and we have developed the master plan for the area of 130,000 m².
The carbon-neutral building has obtained European GreenBuilding certification and energy class 2 in the building regulations.
