THE KRANE RE-DEFINES LUXURY IN A HIDEAWAY FOR TWO WHERE THE ART IS THE VIEW
THE KRANE is an immersive, multi-sensory experience. Inside is exclusive Danish design in black in homage to its past as a coal crane. Outside is the sea, sky, harbour and panoramic views over Copenhagen. An inventive, cohesive concept in this private retreat for two.
THE KRANE is an aesthetic oasis amidst an industrial landscape on the edge of Nordhavn, one of the last harbours under renovation in Denmark’s capital.

Spearheaded by visionary owner Klaus Kastbjerg and architect / master builder Mads Møller from Arcgency, the concept builds on its dark past as a crane for loading coal by using black as the colour scheme throughout. Fostering a soothing sense of serenity inside this multi-tiered structure comprised of a reception area on the ground floor, a meeting room called the GLASS BOX on the first floor, a spa and terrace on the second floor, and a retreat on top called the KRANE ROOM with a lounge and terrace.
It reflects Denmark’s less-is-more stance on luxury, where anything extraneous is eliminated favouring only what’s essential.

Inside, the subdued black interior sets the scene like a picture frame for the unobstructed views over Copenhagen and beyond..
