You might guess that the Leaning Tower of Pisa inspired the slanted design of the Bella Sky Comwell hotel. But architects from the Danish firm 3XN drew on Japanese origami concepts to create the tilting twin towers, which lean apart from each other at 15-degree angles (four times the angle of Pisa’s tower). At 250 feet, Bella Sky Comwell is one of the tallest buildings in Scandinavia. The views from the rooftop bar stretch as far as Sweden. Interiors have a Nordic aesthetic and are furnished with midcentury pieces from Arne Jacobsen, Moroso, and Hay.
