Modern Maritime: Skeppsholmen Hotel in Stockholm

July 19, 2013

Architects Claesson Koivisto Rune were inspired by the mist and fog of the Swedish archipelago when they chose the palette for the Hotel Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. Located on a small island, accessible by bridge to Stockholm’s city center, Hotel Skeppsholmen is housed in two buildings that date back to 1699 and were built to house Sweden’s Royal Marines. Using a mix of custom-designed and classic fixtures, furniture, and lighting, CKR have created an urban oasis reminiscent of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen.
