    Simultaneously to the UN-climate summit, taking place in December 2009 in the Danish capital, the Crown Plaza Copenhagen Towers has opened as the first CO² neutral hotel in the capital.The new hotel is situated in the modern district Ørestad, close to Copenhagen’s international airport Kastrup, reachable via metro in just a few minutes from the city centre.

    Thanks to a facade consisting of 2,400sqm of solar panels, the Copenhagen Towers is climate neutral. This little ‘power plant’ is the biggest solar system in northern Europe and fulfills the EU Standard of a ‘Green Building’.

    The master plan for the Copenhagen Towers has been developed by architects Dissing and Weitling from Copenhagen and Forster and Partners from London under the mandate of Danish investor Sjælsøgruppen.

    The business and convention hotel has at total area of 130.000sqm and 25 floors encompass a total of 366 rooms. Ranging from 28sqm for a deluxe room and up to 60sqm for the suites, all rooms are furnished in Nordic-elegant style and equipped with energy saving Baulmann luminaries.

    In combination with an energy-efficient compact fluorescent lamp, the integrated 3W-LED reading light perfectly illuminates the guest rooms.

    These luminaries were specifically developed for this project in close cooperation with the interior design-practice Dynamo Studio from Copenhagen.
