Wingårdhs renews Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm

The Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, Stockholm, originally launched in 1912 for the Olympics, is undergoing refurbishment slated to be completed in spring next year.

All 170 guestrooms and suites, meeting spaces, lobby, restaurant and bars at the hotel are being updated by architectural agency Wingårdhs. Most phases of the renewal are already complete, with only the final guestrooms left to finish.

According to Leila Atlassi, architect at Wingårdhs in Stockholm, the design team made use of natural materials like stone, wood, leather, metal and concrete in their natural colors. A specific tone of grey—called “Strand Grey”—serves as the base in the interior concept.
