Nobis Hotel by Claesson Koivisto Rune

By • Feb 28, 2011

Founded in 1995 by former University College of Arts classmates Mårten Claesson, Eero Koivisto and Ola Rune, Claesson Koivisto Rune is a Stockholm-based architecture firm.

The studio has recently designed the interior of the Nobis Hotel located in two historic late 19th-century buildings on Norrmalmstorg square in the heart of downtown Stockholm, Sweden.

The Nobis Hotel offers 201 rooms including 69 standard double rooms, 99 Superior rooms, 22 Deluxe rooms and 11 Suites.

Nobis Hotel by Claesson Koivisto Rune:

“Designed with a holistic attitude, together with a certain amount of eccentricity, Nobis Hotel is a contemporary 5-star hotel.

The extravagant Gold Bar, the French-inspired 24/7 bistro, the generous lounge, the Italian trattoria Caina on the floor below, the relax area clad entirely in marble and the conference section with its original wooden panelling preserved have each been given a distinctly different character. Despite this, each space flows into the next so that the spatial context is strong.


The colour scheme and lighting design is also warm and subdued throughout. We call it Scandinavian dark blond. Another recurring theme is subtle patterns, in many cases derived from our own abstracted architectural drawings. Like the corridor carpeting and the wallpaper in the conference section.

Apart from the fixed interior features like, for example, the reception desk in rusted shipping steel, a large number of new furniture designs, textiles and lamps have been developed specifically for the hotel.”
