And hotel, or as the logo has it: &hotel, opened in central Stockholm in 2016. The 500 square metre property, which has been gutted and completely refurbished, consists of 201 rooms. 60 of which are cabin rooms in the basement.
The aim was to create a high quality, space-saving hotel. This means that the rooms are small, but basically contain everything the customers might prioritise, above all, a comfortable bed and a fresh-looking shower
room. Facilities such as an ironing board, an electric kettle and a safe, are kept in a box which is pulled out from underneath the bed. There is also room for luggage here. Space has been saved by having a smart clothes panel instead of a wardrobe.
The brief to Millimeter architects was that the interior fittings should maintain a high level of quality in
terms of materials, and also have a modern, but timeless appearance. It was also important to radiate warmth.The architects therefore put a lot of work into bringing out the cosiness factor in the hotel’s lounge.
Senab’s role in the project was to develop the designs for the guest rooms together with the architect and the client. We have been responsible for the entirety of the hotel’s interior design, both the rooms and the public areas, and we have procured all the fixed and loose fittings and fixtures.
The logistics are important in this type of project. If a supplier is not able to deliver on time, one of Senab’s strengths is to find an alternative product. We know what’s available and which furniture can be substituted for a cheaper alternative without impacting on the quality.
