New Life for Hotel d’Angleterre

Design: C. F. Møller Architects

Due to close 1 Jun 2011 for refurbishment

English text (scroll down for Danish):

C. F.

The main idea of the renovation is to create a hotel that feels like a luxurious private home – and not least a Danish home.

“It is a historic building which is part of the city of Copenhagen and embodies a stylish elegance. We will strive to give it a contemporary classic – as well as exclusive – appearance, “states architect and partner Anna Maria Indrio.

Fewer, but larger rooms

The new Hotel d’Angleterre will have fewer, but larger rooms: The existing 123 rooms will be reduced to 91 The rooms will have an average size of 50 m2 – the largest suite will be 250 m2 ex. balcony. No two rooms are alike – they will all be unique.

The renovation will provide the hotel with two restaurants and two bars as well as a new, larger spa area. The historic banquet room will be restored, making it possible to accommodate more than 500 guests.

Finished in the beginning of 2012

The owner is the Remmen Foundation which originally sold the hotel to Icelandic investors in 2007, but in February this year chose to buy it back. C. F. Møller Architects was appointed for the job among a field of the most renowned architects in Denmark.

The renovation, costing a three-digit million amount, means that the Hotel d’Angleterre will close temporarily – from June this year and till the beginning of 2012.

Nyt Liv til Hotel d’Angleterre

Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller er blevet udvalgt til at renovere Danmarks nok mest berømte hotel – det femstjernede Hotel d’Angleterre, der i mere end et kvart årtusinde har ligget på Kongens Nytorv i hjertet af København og været det foretrukne valg for de kendte og kongelige.

Hovedidéen i renoveringen er at skabe et hotel, der opleves som et herskabeligt privat og ikke mindst dansk hjem.

“Det er en historisk bygning, der en del af byen og en ramme for en stilfuld elegance. Vi vil stræbe efter at give den et nutidigt klassisk formsprog og eksklusivitet,” siger arkitekt og partner Anna Maria Indrio.

Færre, men større værelser

Det nye Hotel d’Angleterre vil få færre, men større værelser: De eksisterende 123 værelser vil blive reduceret til 91. Værelserne får en gennemsnitlig størrelse på 50 m2 – den største suite bliver på 250 m2 ex. balkon. Ikke to værelser bliver ens – alle bliver de unikke.

Renoveringen betyder, at hotellet får to restauranter og to barer samt en ny og større spa. De historiske banketlokaler bliver bevaret, men bliver restaureret og får plads til flere end 500 gæster.

Åbning i starten af 2012

Hotellet blev i februar overtaget af den tidligere ejer, Remmen Fonden, efter at fonden i 2007 solgte det til islandske interesser. Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller blev valgt til opgaven blandt et felt af Danmarks mest velrenommerede arkitektfirmaer.

Renoveringen til et trecifret millionbeløb betyder, at Hotel d’Angleterre lukker midlertidigt – fra juni i år og til starten af 2012.
