The general design of The Edge has been developed by Niels Torp; the Norwegian architects won in 2010 the invited competition.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen were responsible for the interior; the Danish architecture office selected for the ceiling of the hotel lobby and the restaurant product line EXYD-G.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects stated: "… the restaurant and the lobby have a spectacular ceiling in a triangular pattern. The ceiling is designed in polished stainless steel, which reflects the light and creates a shimmering atmosphere indoors, underlining the whole experience of being close to nature."
