Fyra helps renovate Sokos Hotel Koli in Finland

Fyra was commissioned to design parts of the renovation of Sokos Hotel Koli. The property is situated in a natural park in the North Karelia region of Finland.

Fyra was in charge of designing the restaurant, café, conference and reception areas of Sokos Hotel Koli. For the design company, the objective was to design timeless and classic interiors, which would not draw too much attention away from the view through the windows.

Since the restaurant is used both evening and morning time, special attention was paid to create a modifiable space. Local products also play an important role in the overall aesthetic, and are therefore well displayed in the restaurant.

The cafe was designed as a space where customers could drop by straight from their outdoor activities. The goal was to set the café interior apart from the restaurant, but for it to still be coherent with the overall design.

Meanwhile, the conference area went through a renovation, which included the technics and lighting. The lighting can be modified from meeting room requirements to private events.
