Blique by Nobis — Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm’s Vasastan district sees a new addition courtesy of Nobis Hospitality Group, which has just opened the doors to Blique.
Occupying a 1930s industrial warehouse, originally designed by Sigurd Lewerentz, the 249-room property has been reborn through the imagination of Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh, who previously worked with the group on its Copenhagen iteration.
Using raw materials to underpin its original heritage, metal and steel complement the concrete surfaces, which are then softened with tactile leathers, textiles and timber.
The property’s expansive courtyard underpins its design focus on bringing people together, further exhibited by the space’s two restaurants and numerous bars, one of which can be found on the rooftop terrace, boasting vast views over the Swedish capital.
Surrounded by art galleries, bars and eateries, there’s no doubt Blique has become a social hub for visitors and locals alike. §
