Herman K Hotel
The building in Bremerholm street was designed by Hans Christian Hansen in 1963. The concrete building´s heritage-protected façade has a grid of horizontal dark bronze slats metal blades, and the interior cast concrete is left exposed with concrete floors and the original terrazzo stairs. Herman K is named after Herman A. Kähler (1846-1917), a renowned ceramicist whose Kähler design is still a popular brand. The hotel is the first five star hotel owned by Denmark’s leading boutique hotel chain Brøchner Hotels. The raw brutalist building is rebuilt into a 31 rooms hotel, with an entrance that opens into a 12-meter high central space. The central area´s adjacent spaces now accommodates rooms, small bars and a restaurant. – We wanted to keep the story, and the story is that the building was built for machines, so we transformed it into a place where people can actually live and breathe,’ says general manager Lise Egenius. In addition to the 31 luxury rooms with a edgy interior design Herman K has a roof terrace, a hidden gem in the backyard, and the exclusive three-storyes restaurant Roxie is a place for modern Nordic gastronomy.
