Radisson Blu Seaside Hotel by Fyra, Helsinki – Finland

March 22nd, 2017 by retail design blog

Interior Architects Fyra, a Finnish interior design company, created for the people of Helsinki a new living room with a bold, raw style. In the downtown Helsinki harbour area, in lobby of the Radisson Blu Seaside Hotel, the success became apparent when witnessing the first clients pouring in, looking around and then proceeding to take out their phones and start snapping photos – a confirmation that the room boasting with a raw, gutsy interior had become the new living room of the people of Helsinki.

The architectural design for hotel renovation was carried out by the Finnish interior design company Interior Architects Fyra. The company was established in 2010 by four women. Fyra worked meticulously on the details refining the very essence of the concept of the hotel. The location in the harbour, against the backdrop of an old shipyard, combined with the urban downtown Helsinki vibe was brought into the details of the hotel interior.

The reception desks resemble old travel trunks and behind them is a wall built out of a shipping container. Black bookcases are filled with old binoculars, globes and books, and people gather around wooden tables to soak in the ambience and enjoy their lunch. The colourful bar has a graffiti, This is Helsinki, sprawled across it.
