The Copenhagen Towers hotel has raised its sustainability profile with interior surfaces made of upcycled materials. This solution creates a new business market for the circular economy.
The jury says
The Copenhagen Towers hotel in Ørestad has a high sustainability profile, thanks in no small part to the use of recycled materials, which have been incorporated into the building’s interior without compromising aesthetics or quality. In this project, the Lendager Group has found new innovative ways to upcycle used concrete, waste wood and PET plastic bottles, among other elements. That provides an advantage in the rapidly expanding circular econonmy and has already generated new jobs and economic growth.
