As guests pass through the Neo-Baroque facade of Villa Copenhagen, they enter a world of conscious, contemporary luxury with an ambiance all its own. Housed in the former Danish Post and Telegraph office, which dates to 1912, the 390-room hotel signals a “new social scene” for the Danish capital, offering thoughtful, approachable luxury complemented by intuitive and personalized service. Incorporating the UN Sustainable Development Goals into its overall strategy, the hotel takes full responsibility for its impact on the planet, which is one reason why long-lasting, water-conserving AXOR products were chosen for the bathrooms. Another reason, surely, is aesthetics.
Villa Copenhagen features the AXOR Montreux collection within 381 of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites, designed by London-based practice Universal Design Studio as a place for quiet luxury. The rooms at Villa Copenhagen are designed to be a moment of escape and slowing down, a connection to the beauty of the city. Hand-crafted zellige tiles, an internal window of textured glass, and custom marble vanity units feature alongside AXOR fittings, finished in Chrome and Brushed Black Chrome, an exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surface.
The presence of bespoke AXOR Montreux basin and bathtub faucets in the hotel’s eight Shamballa suites deserves special mention. Designed by Danish luxury brand Shamballa Jewels, the suites convey an atmosphere of luxurious warmth, tranquility and contrast. In the bathrooms, the Shamballa team worked closely with AXOR Signature, the customization service of AXOR, to create bejeweled handles — cast as double thunderbolts, the symbol of Shamballa — for the faucets. The handles are inlaid with ruby and sapphire to represent hot and cold water and perfectly express the AXOR commitment to individualization and personal luxury.
All AXOR fixtures at Villa Copenhagen help the hotel achieve its high sustainability goals. AXOR even developed a special shower system design featuring its water-conserving EcoSmart technology. Rather than compromising the guest experience, such resource-saving measures actually enhance it. Indeed, that’s what conscious luxury is all about. Joyful, inclusive, and sustainable, Villa Copenhagen is a perfect match for the city with which it shares a name — and not to be missed.
