Copenhagen Towers

DISSING+WEITLING architecture har tegnet Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers der med sin gennemførte bæredygtige profil tiltrækker socialt ansvarlige konferencekunder fra hele verden og har høstet en enorm international opmærksomhed med CNN-omtale og EcoTourism-prisen som verdens grønneste hotel i 2010.

Det 72.500 m² store hotel og konferencecenter er et skoleeksempel på de resultater der kan opnås med en gennemført bæredygtighedsstrategi. Projektet er fra tegnebrættet udviklet med fokus på bæredygtighed. Masterplanen er orienteret for optimale dagslysindfald, ligesom udviklingen af selve planlayoutet i højhuset har haft orienteringen i forhold til dagslys som en vigtig parameter. Nordeuropas største bygningsintegrerede solcelleanlæg på 2000 m² er diskret integreret i facaden og de gunstige geologiske forhold har gjort det muligt at udnytte grundvandet til Danmarks første grundvandsbaserede køle/varme anlæg, hvilket har givet en markant energibesparelse på 88%.

Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers ligger som en imposant byport til Ørestad Syd ved skæringen mellem Øresundsforbindelsen og Metroen. Det består af et 25 etagers højhus, reception og gæstefaciliteter i stueplan, et 7-etagers konferencecenter samt et ball room med plads til 800 personer i kælderetagen. De underjordiske parkeringsfaciliteter er dækket af et terrasseret parkområde. Den 10-etagers bygning mod syd, ligeledes tegnet af DISSING+WEITLING architecture, indeholder 9.500 m² kontorlokaler som i stueplan og på første sal er sammenhængende med hotel og konferencecentret.

Det CO2-neutrale byggeri har opnået EU Green Building Certification, Bygningsreglementets Lavenergiklasse 2 og Ecotourism Award (verdens grønneste hotel), uddelt af rejse- og turistorganisationen Skål International.

 

Copenhagen Towers

DISSING+WEITLING architecture has designed the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers which, with its consistent sustainable profile, attracts socially responsible conference customers from all over the world and has gained huge international attention with CNN coverage and an EcoTourism award as the world's greenest hotel in 2010.

The 72,500 m² hotel and conference centre is a textbook example of the results that can be achieved with a successful sustainability strategy. The project was developed from the drawing board with a focus on sustainability. The master plan is oriented for optimal daylight, just as the design of the floor plan of the high-rise building has had orientation relative to daylight as an important parameter. Northern Europe's largest building-integrated solar cell installation of 2,000 m² is discreetly integrated into the facade and the favourable geological conditions have made it possible to exploit the groundwater for Denmark's first groundwater-based cooling/heating plant, which has given a significant energy saving of 88%.

Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers is situated as an imposing gateway to Ørestad South, located south of Copenhagen city centre, at the intersection of the Øresund road/rail link and the city metro line. It consists of a 25 storey high-rise, reception and guest facilities on the ground floor, a seven-storey conference centre as well as a ballroom with a capacity of 800 people in the basement. The underground parking facilities are covered by a terraced park area. The ten storey building to the south, also designed by DISSING+WEITLING architecture, contains 9,500 m² of office space which is connected with the hotel and conference centre on the ground and first floors.

The CO2-neutral building has achieved EU Green Building Certification, the Danish Building Regulation's low-energy class 2, as well as EcoTourism award (the world's greenest hotel) awarded by the travel and tourist organization Skål International.
