Nobis Hotel in Stockholm by Claesson Koivisto Rune

Swedish designers Claesson Koivisto Rune worked with the Nobis Group to design the new Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden. The two 19th century buildings housing the Nobis were originally built and used as residential apartments.

The architects wanted to capture the particular aesthetics of Sweden's soft and warm light and landscape. Architect Ola Rune says, "We've been inspired by the appearance of Stockholm, not in the summer when the light is bright and magical, but in the wintertime, when the light is softer and contrasts lower."

The interiors are designed to feel like a home, curated naturally over time. As Mårten Claesson describes, "We've worked with the ambition of creating interiors of the kind that you would encounter in a private home, assembled over a longer period of time."

Most of all, the architects wanted to create a space that was comfortable and modern at the same time. Reacting to gimmick-ridden hotel design of recent years, the hotel is for the professional traveller, like Claesson, Koivisto, and Rune themselves. Eero Koivisto says of the elegant, timeless effect they were after: "With this hotel, we want to define a timeline, and create a relation between past and present times."

Award-winning star chef Stefano Catenacci designed the hotel's menus. Nobis Hotel opens on December 1st, 2010.
