Koncept converts historic store into Scandic Haymarket hotel

Scandic Haymarket hotel

The Scandic Haymarket hotel opened in Stockholm, housed within the former PUB department store. Locally based architecture and interior design firm Koncept restored the interiors of the building’s original 1920s design, including Art Deco-style detailing on the building’s floors, staircase and gallery-like entrance. Upgrades can be seen on the bespoke furnishings.

The hotel has a café, Greta’s, named for film star Greta Garbo, who was once a PUB employee. The hotel also has Paul’s restaurant and the Americain bar.

The 405-room hotel has 16 suites. Each guestroom was inspired by the Roaring Twenties, and comes with marble countertops, velvet couches, rose gold faucets, and custom patterned wallpaper and textiles. One exclusive suite has a rooftop terrace that doubles as an outdoor events space.
