Where Hagastaden blends together with Vasastaden

Blique by Nobis is located right where the up and coming district Hagastaden blends together with popular Vasastaden. The neighbourhood is also known as Stockholm gallery district, with several art galleries just around the corner.

The location offers endless possibilities for you to explore the artistic side of this capital, together with the many gastronomic restaurants, innovative bars, shopping gems and other hot spots that Stockholm has to offer.

Architecture and design by Wingårdhs

The industrial building that now houses our community at Blique by Nobis was originally planned and constructed by prominent architect Sigurd Lewerentz, known worldwide for his beautiful work. We’ve turned his former warehouse in to a contemporary hotel concept together with Wingårdhs, one of Sweden’s most influential architectural firms.

Blique by Nobis is housed within a 1930s warehouse designed for Philips by acclaimed architect Sigurd Lewerentz, creator of Functionalist masterworks such as the Malmö Opera House. For the transformation of the landmark building we teamed up with architects at Wingårhds, under the leadership of Gert Wingårdh, to create a 249-room contemporary urban hotel in his inimitable “high organic” style. Wingårdh has ensured that the architectural integrity of the original structure remains intact, with a design concept defined by the use of concrete, steel, and exposed metal pipework.
