The Radisson Collection has completed a two-year refurbishment of the historic Strand Stockholm hotel located in the centre of the Swedish capital. Originally launched in 1912 for the Olympics, the property provides 170 guest rooms and suites, meeting spaces, lobby, restaurant and bars. The hotel is just a short walk from Stockholm’s Old Town, Gamla Stan, which features an eclectic mix of shopping destinations, bars and restaurants. Some of the city’s most iconic attractions, such as The Modern Museum, Nordiska Kompaniet Department Store and the ABBA museum, are also situated in a close proximity to the hotel. The new design was developed by internationally acclaimed Swedish architectural studio, Wingardhs.
“We believe in creating a dynamic experience by amplifying the building’s own character. We wanted the new elements to be a distinctive addition to the original appearance,” said Leila Atlassi, architect at Wingardhs in Stockholm. “To create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the interior tonality has been set from natural materials like stone, wood, leather, metal, and concrete in their natural colours. A specific tone of grey is noticed on the walls – Strand Grey and constitutes the base in the interior concept.”
Eva Kalling-Hansson, General Manager at the hotel commented: “We are delighted to welcome guests to the newly refreshed, stylish interiors of Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm, where our personalized guest services and excellent local knowledge awaits, allowing guests to experience a true taste of Stockholm as seen only by locals, and creating memorable moments for all."
