      Klaus K, Helsinki, Finland, Design Hotels

      Located in the late 19th-century Rake building, the hotel Klaus K is inspired by Finland's national epic, the Kalevala, with each of the 171 playful guestrooms boasting a theme that illustrates the Kalevala's primary emotional elements: desire, passion, mysticism, and envy. Yet at the same time, this Helsinki hotel aspires to go even further, to "take the hotel out of the hotel," creating an ultra-designed lifestyle experience where contrasts abound, such as the Renaissance-inspired Rake Sali ballroom. This inspiration is expressed on an intimate—indeed, fun-loving—human scale throughout the space. The hotel also has strikingly unique restaurants. For example Toscanini serves delicious dishes originating from Tuscany and exemplifies the level of high-minded detail that goes into the Klaus K—its interior is inspired by the Finnish national painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela, who spent time in Florence while studying the technique to paint frescos.

      SARC Group

      Originally the Klaus Kurki hotel, a Helsinki landmark for many years, the rechristened Klaus K has been transformed into a welcoming and storied world of brick and Nordic majesty, thanks to the vision of renowned Finnish architects SARC Group. The lead architects of the project, Antti-Matti Siikala and Sarlotta Narjos, have created some of Finland’s foremost modern architectural projects including the Sanoma Talo and the city’s groundbreaking Kone Building. But for Klaus K they went further, creating a high-minded canvas of contrast and wonder, a place where each room unfolds itself like the eagerly-turned pages of a national epic.

      What designer wouldn’t love the charge that comes from being asked to create rooms that represent desire, passion, mysticism, or envy?
