Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture designs Öijared Hotel

Swedish firm Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture announced that it is designing Öijared Hotel in Floda, Sweden. Located in the Öijared forest, the property is adjacent to the Öijared Golf Club, designed by Gert Wingårdh in 1988.

The project team includes: Fredrik Kjellgren, Joakim Kaminsky, Johan Brandström, Sanna Johnels, Mélia Parizel, Michael Tuuling, Sofia Wendel, Maria Syrén, Paco Pomares, Michael Tuuling, Maëlis Grenouillet, Claire McGinley, Gaby Andersson, Joti Weijers-Coghlan and Kay Chang.

Upon completion, the new hotel building – which will complement the architect Gert Wingårdhs’s Öijared Country Club – will convey a sense of countryside where the forest, with all its natural materials, will be present through wood, stone and dim colors. The project will relate to the existing building, as well as to the surrounding nature, since the hotel will blend into the forest. The hotel is said to be based on the same invisible grid as the existing clubhouse, but contrary to the clubhouse, which is dug down in the earth, the hotel stands on pillars.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The building materials were selectively chosen, such as the façade strips that were from the surrounding forest. The hotel will be able to absorb sound, as well as the effect of fire.

The new hotel will have 34 rooms, a conference room, lounge and offices.
