Bella Sky Comwell Hotel – Denmark’s Most Slanted Skyscraper

January 10, 2014

With a leaning angle twice that of the Tower of Pisa, the Bella Sky Comwell Hotel stands out as the most slanted of Denmark’s skyscrapers.

However, the Bella doesn’t just lean, it also twists. The top ten floors of one tower forms an outward bend of approximately 12 degrees, while the other twists the same way the opposite direction. Building this complex architecture was a challenge to the engineers but was accomplished by pre-fabricating concrete panels and assembling them in situ. At a quick rate of 11 days of construction work per floor, the 250 feet (75.6 meters) high hotel building arose.

Distinct by its striking blue and white pattern, the Bella Hotel is the largest designer hotel in Scandinavia, with 23 floors, 812 suites, and 30 rooms for meetings and conferences. Each designer suite is furnished with top modern furniture as well as trapeze-shaped floor-to-ceiling windows that offer an incredible panoramic view of the city while providing natural lighting. The hotel is also equipped with three restaurants, two bars, a spa, a all-exclusive women’s floor, a ballroom, and allergy-friendly and handicap-friendly rooms.
