Architect Gert Wingårdh chose Dinesen Douglas plank floors for Scandic Victoria Tower, Stockholm’s new landmark, which at 34 storeys is the tallest hotel in the Nordic countries. The prestigious project is an architectural vision that combines a modern expression with a warm and welcoming interior.
The hotel attracts attention with its glass and steel facade which depending on lighting and weather conditions changes colour from blue to grey, green and even yellow shades in a triangular pattern. Behind the spectacular facade, Dinesen floors are found both high and low. The solid wooden flooring is an important design element that adds warmth and a human touch to Victoria Tower and invites nature in.
Dinesen Douglas planks are present already in the entrance section of the building. They cover the 16 metre long reception counter that stretches elegantly down the lobby. The two ground-floor restaurants and the wardrobe feature Dinesen floors, and up among the clouds too, nature has a presence. The small, exclusive Sky Bar on the 34th floor has a Dinesen floor, and the stair leading to the lounge area is also made in Douglas.
Wingårdh Arkitektkontor has used exquisite materials and brands in the design of the hotel. In addition to Dinesen, Scandic Victoria Tower features another Danish brand with a strong international profile, Montana, alongside design classics from Vitra, Flos and Kasthall.
