Scandic Victoria Tower in Stockholm by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor
28 March 2012
With the Scandic Victoria Tower, the Swedish metropolis now has a new addition to its list of landmarks. The 34-story hotel is not only the tallest in Stockholm, but in all of Scandinavia. Wingårdh Arkitektkontor was responsible for planning the project.

Behind the sober façade, a mirage of carefully arranged glass prisms, the hotel presents a fusion of Scandinavian modernism and numerous famous furniture classics. One special design element to grace its interior is the light hardwood flooring by Danish company Dinesen.

The solid Douglas planks lead visitors in through the entrance hall to the 16-meter-long reception desk, which is also clad in wood and sweeps through the entire lobby. In addition to a number of guest lounges there are also two restaurants to be found on the ground floor as well as the Sky Bar on the 34th story, likewise fitted with wooden flooring by Dinesen. Nordic naturalness is certainly the defining element of this first-class hotel's interior.

The architectural firm Wingårdh Arkitektkontor has furnished the Scandic Victoria Tower with select materials and brand products. Alongside flooring from Dinesen, furniture by Montana and a number of other Danish manufacturers was carefully selected to fill the hotel. These are joined by design classics from the likes of Vitra, Flos and Kasthall.
