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 sustainable profile, and in 2010 Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers won the Ecotourism award as the world's greenest hotel.

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 strategy to be a sustainable role model.
Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers has 365 rooms, a seven-floor 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.
