Meet Gert Wingårdh — the architect behind Nobis Hotel Copenhagen

Danish classicism meats an updated take on Le Corbusier in our first hotel outside Stockholm and Sweden.

In the development of Nobis Hotel Copenhagen, the historic landmark building in Nils Brocks Gade is being transformed into a cutting-edge contemporary luxury hotel by Wingårdh Architects, Sweden’s most celebrated architect firm, under the leadership of star architect Gert Wingårdh.

“Danish classicism, which this is a fine example of, is something special — more sophisticated, more stripped down than in Sweden. We’ve been delicate and respectful, emphasizing every detail of the original architecture and decor, adding superior quality natural materials such as various marbles, stone, wood and glass, with a subtle color scale, accentuated with beautiful greens.”

“It’s a privilege to work with this fantastic building,” says Gert Wingårdh. “Danish classicism, which this is a fine example of, is something special — more sophisticated, more stripped down than in Sweden. We’ve been delicate and respectful, emphasizing every detail of the original architecture and decor, adding superior quality natural materials such as various marbles, stone, wood and glass, with a subtle color scale, accentuated with beautiful greens.”

“With the annex section from the 1960s, however, where the restaurant is with its seperate entrance, we’ve allowed ourselves more architectural liberty.” Wingårdh adds. ”We’ve been inspired here by Le Corbusier’s La Tourette Dominican monastery from the late 50s, with its boldly elegant lines. I think there is something of a connection between this style of late 50s modernism and turn-of-the-20th century classicism.”
