  • 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
    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 own strategy to be "a sustainable role model".
