The Hotel Ottilia‘s building is the gathering of two of the area’s most distinctive warehouses – the Maltmagasinet from 1881 and Lagerkælder from 1969 – that were left empty and abandoned for years; the warehouses were carefully transformed with respect to their unique characteristics and history, with custom-made designs, interiors and a sophisticated visual identity have been added to bring Hotel Ottilia into a new time period.
The hotel distinguishes itself with circular window sections, mirroring the 60 golden circles that decorated one of the warehouses – circular discs decorated with gold foil attest to a brewery characterised by wealth and aesthetic strength.
At the very top of the hotel, is located the timber penthouse floor with a copper roof, while the two lower floors of the project make up an exclusive wellness area where the old vaults and white Carrara marble make a swim in a total of eight different pools a very special experience.
Inside the Hotel Ottilia, one can find the original concrete structures and steel beams, to give an appearance of raw and simple design; old silos and building, and machinery parts are also visible and contribute to the historic and authentic style that underlines the story of a hotel with an exceptional character.
The design and architecture of the Hotel Ottilia were performed by the Arkitema Architects and Mette Freskild, and they provided Brøchner Hotels with a unique luxury boutique hotel to their collection.
