The men’s changing rooms at the Bellevue seaside resort were designed in the 1930s and are now being transformed into a beautiful bathing house. The listed building is situated just a few kilometres north of Copenhagen and following an extensive renovation has become a place of wellbeing for body and soul.

Sauna, infrared sauna, sauna shower, seawater bath, yoga and a café invite visitors to relax on the beach. The renovation was performed with the utmost respect for the late designer and his original designs. Consequently, Jacobsen’s inimitable style was retained in the building and is evident not least in the hand-painted numbers on the original wardrobe-style cupboards.

At the same time, the harmonious bathroom furniture of the sanitary areas is entirely in keeping with Arne Jacobsen’s vision: the elegant above-counter basins of the Happy D.2 Plus range, Zencha’s gently rounded mirrors, and the timelessly modern ME by Starck toilets harmonise perfectly with the architecture dating back to 1932.

The development around the legendary Klampenborg beach represents the culmination of Jacobsen’s ideas and concepts – his total artwork. Arne Jacobsen had grand visions when he designed the ‘White City’ – a complex including the Bella Vista residential building, the Bellevue theatre and the Bellevue Beach – at the start of the 1930s. Jacobsen even created the iconic lifeguards’ towers for the seaside resort in addition to the buildings themselves. The resort remains a popular destination for day-trippers, not least architecture students with an interest in modernism.
