Denmark's Bella Sky Hotel




The new Bella Sky Hotel designed by 3XN could mirror anything from an ultra modern Leaning Tower of Pisa, to sprouting leaves, or parting wings.  The impressive geometries and consistency throughout from the building angles to the cut of the windows or the interior lighting are impressive inside and out.  It is the largest hotel in Scandinavia boasting an intense 15 degree lean, by comparison the Leaning Tower of Pisa Leans at just under 4 degrees.  The interior tells a story of its own.  The furnishings are all natural, the lobby is covered in a monumental living wall, and a massive LED centerpiece subtly changes the inside to mimic the shifting Danish sky.  3XN designed the building to evoke Northern Europe's connection with the natural world.
