An Italian gem
In the 1950s Hagahuset building, we’ve worked with Kom Hotel, which is owned by KFUM Central, to create a hotel and long-stay accommodation with an Italian feel. With its fantastic location just minutes from Hagaparken, Hotel Gió opened in spring 2020, with buses to Arlanda Airport stopping right on the doorstep.
Throughout, great emphasis has been placed on design, personality, sustainability and smart digital solutions. The beautiful, specially designed furniture is now in place and interacts with the genuine 1950s details of the well-known Hagahuset building.
Utilising the building’s fantastic character and details combined with sustainability have been watchwords in the renovation of Hagahuset and in the opening of Hotel Giò. Among other things, a decision was taken to enlarge the windows on the ground floor, and this work thus interfered with the façade of the listed building. This was made possible after original drawings showed that the window sizes corresponded to the original design from the 1950s, which has resulted in a bright and open ground floor.
On 2 December 2020 Hotel Giò was awarded the Solna Urban Environment Prize 2020. Read more about the prize here>
