Located in the old area of Carlsberg, Copenhagen, in a historic building originally used as a silo to house the malt and grain used by the Carlsberg beer brewery. When renovating the site into a hotel in 2019, the goal was to preserve the unique atmosphere and architecture from its brewery days, which included incorporating many of the original machines into the interior design and layout of the space. The hotel has 155 guest rooms, a fitness center, a rooftop bar and restaurant, multiple conference rooms in a variety of sizes, and a lobby area located inside the old silo portion of the property. Dipylon Hall, one of the larger spaces within the hotel, provides an exciting industrial atmosphere with a lounge area boasting a 20-meter high ceiling, and offers a variety of DJs or live music sessions weekly.
Bose Pro Partner Auditive Network delivered the full sound set up in the hotel using various Bose Professional products to fulfill the requirements of this special installation. The sound system in Hotel Ottilia is a complex system with PowerMatch amplifiers and ControlSpace EX-1280C digital signal processors handling the FreeSpace loudspeakers distributed across all five floors. The system is divided into 17 different zones so that volume can be independently controlled for each predetermined zone. Brøchner Hotels wants to offer the guests staying in their hotels an unforgettable sound experience. They have created their own playlist that runs in each of their properties, and all Brøchner Hotels host live music sessions once a week. These unique needs required a superior audio solution that was also discreet. Auditive Network was selected to work with a system consisting of RoomMatch Utility RMU105 and RMU108 surface-mounted loudspeakers and MB210 subwoofers installed in Dipylon Hall to provide the best coverage for this live sound area.
“It's rare that a client understands the importance of good sound. But Brøchner Hotels does, which makes working with them extremely satisfying. Hotel Ottilia is a textbook example of how design, great acoustics and well-chosen products can form a well-defined audio experience for the guests. We have worked closely together with the designers to ensure that overall style and looks were preserved without compromising sound quality.”
