One of the strongest and most complete examples from FRIIS & MOTLKE's brutalism period
Back in 1969, Comwell, then known as Scanticon, opened the first hotel in Aarhus in the scenic surroundings of the Skaade Bakker hills. The hotel was operated as a hotel and conference centre for 23 years until 1992, when Comwell entrusted the hotel to another operator. Today, the building works as a trade school.
The concept for Scanticon hotel and conference centre was followed up in the 1970s and 80s with new centers in both Denmark and the United States, and in Germany with Siemens as operator.
