Originally built in 1770, the building was considered of such importance to the city that it was given protected heritage status already in 1927. It has now been carefully restored with great consideration for its history.
Responsible for the interior design are the architects Claesson Koivisto Rune, who are also behind the development of two privately owned hotels in Stockholm (Nobis and Skeppsholmen). The result is a building in timeless Norwegian and Nordic style. Furnishings have been sourced from carefully selected manufacturers, and classic details, dating from the 1900s to the present day, have been purchased from antique dealers across Scandinavia.
