Brussels/Stockholm - August 16, 2018
Wingårdhs, Swedish architectural studio, design vision comes to life.
The Radisson Collection Hotel, Strand Stockholm is now completely renewed, following a highly-considered, two year-long refurbishment. Heralding an exciting, new chapter for one of Stockholm’s most historic buildings – Strand Stockholm’s latest incarnation blends effortless Scandinavian design with an artistic richness, befitting its storied history.
Designed by internationally acclaimed Swedish architectural studio, Wingårdhs, Strand Stockholm joins a unique portfolio of local icons and one-of-a-kinds, as part of Radisson Collection. This new premium lifestyle collection of exceptional hotels are located in unique locations all over the world.
The hotel offers guests truly memorable experiences, combining exceptional design with authentic local touches and a vibrant social scene for locals and hotel guests alike.
Originally launched in 1912 for the Olympics, Strand Stockholm quickly established a reputation as a local hotspot beloved of the stars, such as Swedish actors Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman. A particular popular part of the hotel was the Sea Salon, today the Sea Salon Suite, which boasts remarkable views of the Royal Dramatic Theater.
In what has been a project of ambitious vision, the hotel’s 170 guest rooms and suites, meeting spaces, lobby, restaurant and bars have all been refreshed. The result is a striking ode to effortless modern living, inviting both locals and hotel guests to enjoy atmospheric spaces that celebrate Stockholm’s vibrant social scene. The top floor Tower Suite, has access to a personal roof terrace with panoramic views of the city.
Wingårdhs’ careful selection of furniture from design legends Fritz Hansen, GUBI and Flos channels Scandinavian design at its most elegant – perfectly complementing the historical façade of the building.
“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,” says Leila Atlassi, architect at Wingårdhs in Stockholm, explaining how “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 colors. A specific tone of grey is noticed on the walls – Strand Grey and constitutes the base in the interior concept.”
With an illustrious reputation as a fine dining destination, an exciting new food and bar concept has been crafted, blending local and international influences alike. The hotel’s all-day brasserie, ‘The Strand’, serves distinctly Swedish cuisine and, with stunning views of Nybrokajen Bay, is a striking space sure to enliven Blasieholmen. Meanwhile, the bar is a relaxed, stylish space, the perfect location to enjoy a refreshing cocktail or two, and a buzzing go-to for meeting friends or simply taking-in the local atmosphere.
Eva Kalling-Hansson, General Manager at the hotel says, “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."
Located in the city center, The Strand Stockholm is an ideal base for a stay in the capital. 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 all located a few minutes from the hotel. The Stockholm Arlanda Airport is a quick 20-minute ride away on the Arlanda Express Train.
