Tivoli Four Seasons Hotel in Copenhagen
Foster + Partners has won an international competition to design the first Four Seasons Hotel in Scandinavia set within Copenhagens historic Tivoli Gardens, according to the London architects office. The Tivoli Four Seasons Hotel in Copenhagen project is a luxury, sustainable development of hotel accommodation and condominiums, providing a new landmark for the city while forging a dialogue with the celebrated 19-century amusement park and gardens.
A contemporary architectural intervention on an historic site, it represents a fine balance between celebrating the strengths and culture of Copenhagens distinctive urban grain, while creating a new building that has presence and integrity.
Driven by a careful urban strategy concerned with the preservation of Copenhagens low skyline, the scheme comprises an elegant cluster of interconnecting cylinders that combine to form a generous podium corresponding to the heights of the surrounding rooflines. Elegantly rising from the podium, a slender sculptural tower acts as a marker for the scheme and relates in scale to the City Hall tower opposite, adding to the language of spires in Copenhagen.
The landscaped roofs of the lower buildings extend the greenery of Tivoli and reinforce the buildings sustainable profile. In addition to allowing for rainwater collection, the buildings are oriented to maximise natural light and views while reducing unwanted solar gain in the summer, but capturing the suns rays in the cooler winter months.
