Tivoli Corner is a development project for Tivoli’s Northwest corner, from Vesterbrogade along Bernstorffsgade to the Nimb building. The new building will create a new and dynamic transition from city to amusement gardens. The Tivoli Corner is developed in collaboration with world-renowned architechts Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects in New York City. Tivoli Corners roof will house a recreational area for Nimb Hotel’s guests as well as a rooftop garden and restaurant, the very succesful Sticks ‘n’ Sushi group’s 13th Danish restaurant (there are 5 in th UK and 1 in Germany as well). A large part of the 1st and 2nd floor is reserved for 21 new rooms for award-winning Nimb Hotel. Access will be through Nimb and the rooms will be decorated in Nimb’s elegant yet comfy style. The ground floor and part of the 1st floor are for food outlets and retailers. A food hall with communal seating and 14 outlets takes up most of the space. But there is also room for Italian restaurant Vapiano and design retailers Illums Bolighus + one more, that is yet to be decided on.
Historically, Tivoli Gardens was a summer pass-time for people living in or visiting Copenhagen. Located on the banks of the city moat, Tivoli’s southern and western façades were considered unimportant, whereas the northern and eastern facades were considered the front of Tivoli, thus getting all the attention. Although Tivoli abandoned that view many years ago, Tivoli’s southern and western facades until recently consisted of a number of smaller buildings many of which were not meant for all-year operations. The opening of Tivoli Corner therefore marks a new era and a new link between the city and the amusement park. Because of Tivoli Corner’s location and Tivoli Gardens’ historic site, Pei Cobb Freed & partners Architects have designed two very different facades for Tivoli Corner. Facing the street, the façade matches the urbanity and bustle of modern Copenhagen. Facing Tivoli, the façade comes down in scale, is terrased and full of green plants to match Tivoli’s iconic entrance arch and the 1874 Chinese theatre. Tivoli Corner is scheduled a soft opening November 15, 2017.
