HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
ARCHITECTURE / INTERIOR DESIGN
Inspired by the emotional contrasts of Finland’s national epic, its nature and drama, Helsinki’s Klaus K hotel bears the stamp of Finland’s finest architectural and literary traditions.
The Klaus Kurki hotel, a landmark for many years, has been transformed into the Klaus K with the help of reknowned Finnish architects SARC Group and international interior design by Stylt Trampoli. Located in the late-19th century Rake building, the hotel brings Finland’s national epic, the Kalevala, down to an intimate human scale throughout. The lead architects of the Klaus K, Antti-Matti Siikala and Sarlotta Narjos of SARC Architects, have created some of Finland’s foremost modern architectural projects including the Sanoma Talo and Helsinki’s groundbreaking Kone Building.
Each of the 139 guestrooms is given a theme illustrating the Kalevala’s primary emotional elements: Desire, passion, mystical and envy. The Klaus K aspires to go further and “take the hotel out of the hotel”: Creating an ultra-designed lifestyle experience where contrasts abound, such as the Renaissance-inspired space of the Rake Sali ballroom and the playfully designed theme rooms and suites – the hotel delivers a luxurious experience of tradition and cutting-edge Nordic modernity.
