In the developing waterfront city of Nordhavn, Copenhagen stands a coal crane which has undergone extensive renovation in the past two years. Now Arcgency, a Danish architectural office, has transformed it into a spectacular boutique hotel that offers one of the most unique hospitality experiences in Copenhagen and beyond. The reception area, glass-walled meeting room, spa, and terrace are located on the ground floor. Meanwhile, a private retreat that includes a lounge and terrace is situated on the top floor. The couple friendly Krane Room features an all-black interior that expands throughout the entire structure as an homage to its past as a coal crane. With Scandinavian furniture handcrafted to fit the color concept, they seem to disappear into the interior, including the bed, table and cupboards. The black-filled interior contrasts dramatically with the changing light and views throughout the day. For the architect, black isn’t just black anymore.
