An undulating glass and terraced terracotta pavilion opened at Tivoli Gardens on November 17 to public acclaim. The new building transforms the western edge of the historic park and brings fresh excitement to Copenhangen’s urban core. Designed by the internationally recognized New York—based architectural firm Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, the project houses a food hall, shops, restaurants, and hotel rooms and is topped by a landscaped roof. It continues Tivoli’s rich tradition of intertwined recreation, amenity, and natural beauty.

The distinctive design of Tivoli Hjørnet (Tivoli Corner), which unfolds 108 meters along Bernstorffsgade, was inspired by the fortification walls and moat that surrounded the historic city and remain imprinted on the garden’s layout. Its modest scale is in keeping with Tivoli’s nineteenth-century entry pavilion and adjacent Nimb Hotel as well as the immediate neighborhood, preserving the dominance of spires on the skyline and that of the garden’s own vertical structures. The new building is designed to be a counterpoint to the famous Arne Jacobsen SAS hotel nearby.

Both a portal to the fanciful world of Tivoli and a mirror reflecting the very real life of Copenhagen of which it is part, Tivoli Hjørnet presents different faces to the city and to the park within. On the street side, the undulating glass wall embodies the lively spirit for which Tivoli is known, capturing nuances of changing light while providing solar shading and insulation. On the garden side, terracotta cladding recalls Copenhagen’s tradition of warm-hued, clay-based masonry as well as its timber shipbuilding heritage. A series of curvilinear terraces with private gardens for hotel guests culminates in a landscaped roof, where visitors can enjoy panoramic views of both the park below and the city beyond.

“Tivoli is a place that invites involuntary dreaming,” observes Ian Bader, a partner at Pei Cobb Freed & Partners and lead designer for the project. “The extraordinary natural landscape and evocative atmosphere of Tivoli can and should be part of the everyday life of Copenhagen. By enhancing the magic of Tivoli’s interior, this initiative both preserves and enriches the experience of visiting the garden.”
