The Vibe: A haven for trend-conscious urban travellers who appreciate design, art, architecture and food.
The Area: Sandwiched between Stockholm’s Vasastaden district and Hagastaden neighbourhood, amid an unrivalled community hub for design, architecture, visual arts, food and music.
The DNA: Housed within a monumental 1930s warehouse – originally designed by Swedish architect Sigurd Lewerentz for Philips – Blique by Nobis is a 249-room urban hotel that doubles as a natural nucleus for both local and travelling creatives. The design hotel blends into its industrial surrounds following architect Gert Wingårdh’s careful transformation of the landmark building, which saw him ensure the architectural integrity of the original structure remained intact, with a design concept defined by the use of concrete, steel, and exposed metal pipework. There is a diverse offering of restaurants and bars, a rooftop terrace with stunning views, bustling public courtyard, and an impressive cultural calendar.
Suite-Me-Up: Guest rooms and suites have been designed to combine space efficient solutions with the beauty of artisanal craftsmanship and feature beds from Bed Factory and custom-designed, open storage units rendered from steel tubing; while the hotel’s Studio suites offer fully-fitted kitchenettes, ideal for the long-stay visitors.
