A former brutalist bank building in Stockholm was transformed into a Luxury hotel, the At Six hotel, is home to one of Europe’s most ambitious contemporary art collections within a hotel, this the most recent project of architecture and interiors design from Universal Design Studio.
The London-based studio has completed At Six, a 343 room hotel in Stockholm’s Brunkebergstorg Square. Working on the immediate architectural landscape of the square through to the extensive interior renovation and new façade the scheme includes ten floors of guest rooms, a penthouse suite, a 100 cover restaurant, a wine bar, cocktail bar and a 2000 sqm events and flexible work space.
Moving away from the uncompromising and unforgiving aesthetic often associated with the brutalism – Universal’s brief was to create a desirable destination.
The design is focused on humanizing the architecture, bringing a sense of desirability and luxury and turning it into a contemporary version of a metropolitan grand hotel.
The interiors decor are monochromatic, the shades of gray and highly textured natural materials contrast with soft fabric and luxury furniture editions. “A palette of sawn stone, blackened steel, fine timber and polished granite lends a sense of permanence and authenticity to the new interior,” explained Universal.
The selection of contemporary design and luxury furniture pieces are complemented by bespoke pieces from local makers and established Scandinavian designers Universal commissioned directly for the project.
Guest rooms are designed with bespoke furniture, marble credenzas that run the full length of the room and design lighting. The tinted mirrors were positioned on side of the window brings the most of the natural light
Original artwork including pieces by Jaume Plensa, Tacita Dean, and Richard Long are displayed within the public spaces as well as individual artworks by Kristina Matousch in the guest rooms.
