The brief was to create a concept and to design the interior, as well as a number of unique pieces of furniture for the gastro hotel, which is situated in a former office block dating back to the 1960's.
Taking the "forest, lake and meadow" philosophy of the gastronomy of PM & Vänner as the starting point, the ambition was to work with this concept to create a destination that felt cosmopolitan, while rooted in its surroundings. Limestone from nearby Öland features in the bathrooms, reception and bar, representing both the foundation of the hotel and the topography of the region. Oiled oak floors made of wood from Småland provide a neutral backdrop to design classics such as Carl Malmsten chairs.
A main entrance, double-height master suite, smaller suites and a rooftop bar and pool area were added to the existing architecture.
