Crowne Plaza Towers, Copenhagen

Baulmann Lighting equippes first CO²–neutral Hotel in Copenhagen

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 disctrict 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 2.400 m² 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 + Weitling from Copenhagen and Forster + Partners from London under the mandate of Danish investor Sjælsøgruppen.
The business and convention hotel with at total area of 130.000 m² and 25 floors encompasses a total of 366 rooms. Ranging from 28 m² deluxe rooms up to 60 m² suites all rooms are furnished in Nordic-elegant style and equipped with energy saving Baulmann luminaires. In combination with an energy-efficient compact flourescent lamp, the integrated 3W-LED reading light perfectly illuminates the guest rooms. These luminaires were specifically developed for this project in close cooperation with the interior design-practice “Dynamo Studio” from Copenhagen.
