The third life of a historic hotel in Turku

The most famous and iconic hotel in Turku, Finland, has been built from scratch after dismantling the old building from the 1970s. This large scale project, managed by YIT construction company and designed by Schauman Architects, has resulted in a new, more energy efficient building equipped with modern technologies. But not all is gone. The new Scandic Hamburger Börs hotel retains the essence of the original building in its design. The oldest part of the hotel, protected by Finnish heritage legislation, has been restored, and the new building, built over the extension carried out in the 1970s, maintains a historical dialogue with it.

The hotel’s origins date back to 1894, when the Hamburger Bierhalle restaurant opened its doors. Back then the site was occupied by a two storey stone building dating from the 1830s. Later at the turn of the century it was renovated in an Art Nouveau style that still remains today. Known for her charisma and leadership, hotel founder Wallina Valtin bought the restaurant in 1898, while the hotel began operating in 1904. Valtin sold the Hamburger Börs hotel to the Turku Cooperative Society, who were in charge of the extension project carried out in the 1970s and which gave the hotel a second life. Modernisation of the building began in the late 2010s. At that time, the owner was the insurance company LocalTapiola. However, now it has been acquired by the Scandic hotel chain, which is giving this architectural icon a third life.

A project with a soul

The new building has been designed by Schauman Architects and preserves elements from the early 20th century. Its Más restaurant, located on the ground floor, is accessed through a reception area, a lounge and a spacious foyer. The heated winter garden by the restaurant and the open air terrace next to the rooftop bar complete the common areas. The hotel has 272 rooms and suites in total.

According to Janne Halin of the architecture studio, the project involved a dialogue between several different styles and the main challenge was to adapt the new building to its surrounding architecture. Combining the old with the contemporary while paying homage to the past has been the great challenge of the project.

Quality materials

Among the materials used in the renovation project, the architecture studio chose Silestone for the worktops and tables in the restaurant and the rooms. Eternal Marquina was the colour chosen for the bar counter, a colour that evokes the Nero Marquina marble, bringing elegance and depth to the space and rounding off the Spanish inspired design of this common area of the hotel. The tables in Eternal Noir, another dramatic shade, complete the atmosphere. Silestone surfaces are highly resistant to stains, scratches and are easy to maintain, which makes them the ideal material for spaces like this.

Charming rooms

The hotel’s cosy rooms feature an elegant interior design. From the luxurious suite with beautiful arched windows to the standard rooms, they all offer an atmosphere in which the hotel’s history and contemporary comforts come together. “The interior design of the rooms features a neo-Scandinavian style that uses warmer colours to create a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, replacing traditional styles based on light and simple colours”, says interior architect Jaakko Puro.

Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel renovates the Hélianthal Thalazur hotel

Located in the seaside town of Saint-Jean-De-Luz, in the heart of the French Basque Country, the Hélianthal Thalazur hotel occupies a historic building recently renovated and reopened on 29 July 2021. Architect Jean-Philippe Nuel was responsible for the renovation of this 30-year-old luxury hotel, which has retained the 1920s architecture and design by Mallet-Stevens while updating the whole.

The areas to be renovated were the spa's cabins and the restaurant tables. The renovation sought to strike the perfect balance between the historic architecture of this area in the south of France and the ocean inspired materials. In addition to this, the architect chose Cosentino materials for both areas, which not only blend in with the beauty of the surroundings, but also add extra strength and quality.

Technical quality

Jean-Philippe Nuel’s aim was to encourage the use of materials that meet design requirements, but also and above all technical and quality requirements. These requirements included providing as natural a finish as possible, as well as easy maintenance to suit the uses of such premises, while at the same time ensuring greater resistance and a design that blends seamlessly into the space. For this purpose, Silestone was used in the spa's cabins: Lagoon was chosen for the basins, while Tebas was the colour chosen for the furniture worktops.

The new skin of the TQ InvestPro building in Girona

In the heart of the city of Girona, the new skin of the TQ InvestPro real estate company’s building transforms the skyline with contemporary touches thanks to its clean design with horizontal lines. Designed by the Arquitecturia studio, the building has a revamped façade that has been clad with Dekton, as well as the outdoor terrace flooring.

The design features large windows that open and close like a book and are concealed when closed, leaving the façade completely opaque and clean in terms of visual appearance.

The ideal material

The choice of Dekton for this ventilated façade was a great technical solution to solve this architectural challenge. The surface proved to be the ideal material after several tests for this type of window with the blacksmith, in addition to ‘the unbeatable conditions we were offered and the excellent treatment and service throughout the process’, the studio explains. The technical properties of this material, which is resistant to temperature changes and stains, make Dekton an optimal surface for outdoor use. Another added value is the aesthetics of the chosen colours, which give a modern and contemporary look. Inspired by the classic cement floors, with a calm movement, Dekton Kreta brings a seamless design in matt texture and grey colour.

An efficient system

The ventilated façade has a Keil system, which conceals the anchors and provides thermal protection, favouring energy saving and, above all, contributing to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly building. A construction solution that fits perfectly with Dekton thanks to its lightness and thickness. The result is a simple but efficient and aesthetically powerful construction option.

The new look of the Meliá Hotel in Milan

After the complete redesign of several areas, including the lobby, restaurant, meeting rooms and bathrooms, one of the landmark hotels in the Italian city of Milan is sporting a fresh new look. The renovation, carried out jointly by Spanish architect Álvaro Sans and Vittorio Grassi Architects, has given a new look to the Meliá Milano, a hotel located in Via Masaccio, very close to the trendy area known as City Life, the new centre of luxury shopping in the city.

The functional and architectural approach of the renovation project led to the rebirth of this 20-year-old hotel, opening up spaces by creating a new, spacious and flexible layout of the common areas. The interior gardens, high skylights and contemporary use of materials and textures give the bar, restaurant and co-working area a sophisticated feel.

A chic colour

Style and functionality are the main elements of this project in which natural materials such as marble, wood and green shades have been combined with Cosentino surfaces. Specifically, Silestone Eternal Marquina was used for the cladding and countertops of the bathrooms, the alcoves and furniture in the meeting rooms, and the worktops and several tables in the buffet and bar area. “The Suede finish creates a unique feeling of comfort”, says Vittorio Grassi. “Furthermore, its appearance, imitating the veins and nuances of precious exotic marbles, fits well with the Spanish marbles in the common areas and the style of Vescom’s fire retardant curtain fabrics”, he further says.

“Silestone wall claddings, in this case in a glossy finish, allowed us to achieve the style we were looking for but with an ease of maintenance that meets the hygiene standards you would expect in a five star hotel”.

Hygiene standards and easy maintenance

In addition to the Suede finish, polishing has been applied in the bathroom area. “Functionality is a key element of hotel management and, in the case of business accommodation, bathroom areas can get very crowded”, explains the architect. “The Silestone wall claddings in a glossy finish allowed us to achieve the style we were looking for but with an ease of maintenance that meets the hygiene standards you would expect in a five star hotel”, he adds. As a result, the combination of luxury, beauty and technical properties for high traffic areas is perfect.

A lobby that looks like one from a luxury hotel

A first glance at the entrance and reception of the renovated headquarters of the glass distributor Van Noordenne in the Netherlands would not suggest that this is an office complex. It feels more like a luxury hotel, with its elegant design, sophisticated materials and precious interior design. For this new headquarters of Europe’s largest glass wholesaler, the firm has commissioned the interior designer Nathalie van Noordenne, who has put all of her passion and creativity at the service of this mega-project for this family company whose origins date back to 1938.

It was in the 1930s that Jan van Noordenne founded this family business. From a local company, it grew into an international wholesale business specialising in glass. Today, in its new headquarters, every effort has been made to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the company’s offices and restaurant.

Image of Van Noordenne Groep Jaro van Meerten TAOL 05 in Scandic Hamburger Börs Hotel - Cosentino

Exotic beauty at the reception desk

The reception desk is the crown jewel of the lobby. The designer chose Sensa Orinoco to add a warm and stylish touch to this area. The rich, earthy tones of this colour, inspired by wild granite, along with its white, golden and copper veining, bring glimpses of beauty to this space.

A restaurant to match

The company’s restaurant, where Sensa Orinoco has also been used in large 2 cm thick slabs, has been conceived following the same design concept. The centrepiece of this area is the large Sensa Orinoco fireplace – an explosion of beauty when lit and a piece of sculpture when unlit. Furthermore, part of the wall has been clad with the same material. Certainly a high standard for a restaurant where customers, guests and staff can relax and enjoy an exclusive atmosphere.

Relaxed spaces with natural materials

The newly built hotel Scandic CPH Strandpark presents itself as a relaxed and welcoming meeting point in an ideal location. Halfway between Oresund, Copenhagen airport and the Danish capital, it offers privileged views and the beautiful backdrop of the local beach. It is the first hotel in the Scandic chain to focus on the brand’s new strategy of targeting a specific new design-loving guest.

Designed by the architecture and design studio Koncept, the project maintains a relaxed and open character in its design and interior design. It combines natural materials, such as Scandinavian wood, rope and rattan, with durable, recycled surfaces to suit the interior design trends of the future. In particular, Dekton and Silestone have been used to add character and functionality to spaces.

Functionality and aesthetics, two added values

‘We chose Silestone mainly because the table tops had to be durable, easy to maintain and clean in the restaurants, lounges, rooms and rooftop bar,’ Vera Arvidsson from Koncept explains. ‘And because it is resistant to heat and the constantly changing Scandinavian weather, Dekton works perfectly in the open kitchen and on the outdoor terraces,’ she continues. All these technical features also have the added value of sustainability, which reinforces the concept of the hotel itself, as the surfaces are made from recycled materials.

Multiple applications

Specifically, light sand-coloured Dekton Danae in matt finish has been used for the kitchen worktops, buffet and outdoor tables. Meanwhile, the coffee tables in the lounges, as well as the tables in the restaurant and skybar, are made of Silestone Coral Clay. Conversely, Silestone Eco Luna 14 – customised for this project and in Polished finish – has been used for the desks in the rooms, the worktops in the bars, the tables in the lounges and the conference room, all custom-designed by Koncept. In keeping with these materials, the window sills in the rooms feature a beautiful natural stone of travertine marble.

The new Noli Studios hotel combines functionality and dynamism

Aimed at young people and professionals with a dynamic lifestyle and a travelling soul, the new Noli Studios hotel opens its doors with a very flexible concept of short and long term accommodation. This is the third hotel of its kind opened by NREP, a Nordic real estate development and investment company. Located in Myyrmäki, on the outskirts of Helsinki (Finland), the hotel offers common areas, affordable prices and an atmosphere as comfortable as that of a hotel and as relaxed and intimate as that of an apartment.

The eight storey building features 322 contemporary style studios and over 1,000 m2 of common areas, including a gym, sauna, bicycle parking and a variety of spaces for relaxation and work. Functionality and minimalism are key to both the architectural design by Avarrus Architects Ltd and the interior design by dSign Vertti Kivi & Co.

Versatile spaces for sharing

The studios range from 19 to 38 m2, with different options in terms of furniture and prices. Some are designed for single people looking for socialising, while others, with several rooms, are perfect for families or teleworkers. In terms of furnishings, it is possible to book fully furnished studios (including kitchenware, for example), part-furnished or with no furnishings at all. All of them have their own kitchen, equipped with worktops in Silestone Calypso.

Plenty of common areas

“Like our other hotels, Noli Studios Myyrmäki offers guests affordable, highly flexible accommodations, with a sense of community and excellent transport connections”, says Natalia Schrey, Commercial Director at Noli Studios. This concept is also developed in the common areas. Lounges with cosy sofas, conference rooms and a fully equipped communal kitchen for socialising.

Attention to detail

Silestone is perfectly integrated into the contemporary and minimalist design of the hotel. The depth of Silestone Calypso suits its open, flexible designs perfectly, bringing contrast and warmth to bright spaces. Thanks to its technical features, it is perfect for kitchen worktops. Silestone’s high resistance to scratches and impacts makes it the ideal material for high use worktops, like those in these studios.

A successful concept

The formula for success of this hotel chain also lies in setting prices similar to standard rentals in the area for long stays. “The new concept has been very well received by customers. Our goal is to open ten new hotels in the region over the next five years and we are actively looking for new properties and suitable locations”, says Natalia.

Quality for a high traffic area in Lisbon

With hundreds of people visiting one of the largest shopping centres in Portugal, the materials used in the flooring are paramount to ensure the durability of the design. That is the key to this project: a resistant and durable material such as Dekton that meets the needs in terms of design and functionality at one of the entrances of the Dolce Vita Amadora Shopping Centre, in Lisbon, Portugal.

Two architects from Broadway Malyan, one Spanish and one Portuguese, teamed up to design this high traffic area with open spaces exposed to the elements, which is located at one of the entrances to the shopping centre. The availability of Dekton in large format slabs made it the perfect material to create a seamless and expansive space to welcome visitors.

Large format

The colours chosen for the project, based on a neutral palette, enhance the sense of cleanliness and spaciousness in this high traffic area. Specifically, the colours chosen were Blanc Concrete, Vegha and Keon in large format slabs -some of them up to 3.20 x 1.40 m- and with a thickness of 12 mm. Thanks to its availability in large format slabs, Dekton is the perfect solution for designing large surface areas, minimising the number of joints and providing a more welcoming and functional design.

Three colours in harmony

While Blanc Concrete, an aged white with small veins in light grey and beige, adds luminosity, Vegha (from the Natural Collection) brings a natural feel with its textures inspired by limestone and sandstone. Finally, the light toned and bright Dekton Keon adds the finishing touch to the interplay of colours.

Luxury suites in a historic castle by the sea

The contemporary design of the suites at Hotel Gränsö Slott blends in with the historic surroundings and coastal landscape of this resort near the idyllic town of Västervik, Sweden. The setting could not be more privileged: a castle dating back to 1800 and a private beach. There, four new beach villas with sea views have been built. These 45 m2 holiday homes feature spacious bathrooms, a bedroom, living room and large terraces. The four villas of the hotel, Lillön, Skanvik, Ekholmen and Tärnskär, have been designed in partnership with Amelie von Essen, from the AHA Anders Holmberg Arkitekter studio.

“When creating the new interior design concept for the Gränsö beach villas, the most important thing was to create a warm and welcoming space with a Scandinavian touch that integrated the surrounding nature”, explains Amelie von Essen. Dekton was chosen as the main material for the bathrooms, with this being used on the walls, floors and countertops. In addition, independent and well differentiated spaces were created, with a separate bathtub, shower and toilet.

Colours and contrasts

Specifically, the architects chose three colours from Dekton by Cosentino. The first, Dekton Arga, conveys the brightness and tranquility of the precious Taj Mahal quartzite and has been used on the countertops, fronts and large format wall panels of these luxury bathrooms, giving them, thanks to its natural and smooth appearance, a Scandinavian touch. “The colour scheme of Dekton Arga, together with its clear high-gloss design in shades of sand, light grey and white, is reminiscent of shimmering, sun-warmed beaches and is therefore in line with the concept of ‘strandsviterna’ (beach suites)”, explains the architect. The second Dekton colour used was Laos, a unique matt bluish grey that gives the walls and shelves great depth. Finally, Dekton Kreta was chosen for the floor, offering an interesting contrast of textures.”

Uniform and rounded design

“The main features of these spacious bathrooms are the lack of joints and the large format wall cladding. Dekton was the perfect choice for the cladding of all bathroom surfaces, as its beautiful designs, together with its availability in large format slabs and thin thicknesses of 4 and 8 mm, provided us with the ideal solution to convey an appearance of luxury and exclusivity”, says von Essen.

“We used a number of material options and chose to combine a high gloss finish with a matt finish to highlight the designs and create contrasts”.

Advantages for the bathroom

In addition to the aforementioned sense of uniformity, the chosen materials offer a wide range of technical advantages that make them the perfect choice for bathrooms. In the words of Oskar Pettersson, from Cosentino Scandinavia (Dekton manager in this project), “the material has the ideal properties for this type of room, with an almost zero absorption rate and a high resistance to scratches, ensuring that the surface remains unaltered after daily use”. Meanwhile, von Essen points out other aspects of Dekton that were crucial to their choice: “its stain resistance and easy cleaning and maintenance, as the suites receive guests every day”. “We knew it would be easy for the staff to clean the bathrooms and keep them fresh”, concludes von Essen.
