Bella Sky in Copenhagen, Denmark


 
This hotel actually has two buildings that are inclined in different angles; they seem to be facing each other slightly. Yet this innovative play using angles is not just seen on the outside, but in the inside as well; there are more than 200 different shapes of rooms inside this hotel.
