A 19-story aluminum and glass tower set against 17th century brick, Hotel Alsik is a contemporary hotel built to serve the historic port town of Sønderborg in Southern Denmark. The stacked masses of the 190-room hotel part to reveal the historic buildings of the city center behind it, while the façade’s metal panels glow warmly in certain lights to mimic the red brick of its surroundings
A lit observation deck recalls the lighthouses common in so many port cities. Hotel Alsik is a landmark in its own right while still respecting the stature of Sankt Marie Church , whose spire also punctuates the skyline. The hotel is part of architect Frank Gehry’s masterplan for the city, which will bring substantial urban and commercial activity to an industrial waterfront.
Hotel Alsik is positioned to not only become a global destination- amenities include four restaurants, terrace bar, observation deck, and 6,000 m2 of spa and event space- but a congregation point for town residents alike.
