    Elite Plaza Hotel

    In a neoclassical building in downtown Gothenburg, designers Christer Svensson and Lars Helling have created a traditional masterpiece with the Elite Plaza Hotel. In working with this late 19th-century building, the two designers have retained such details as the lobby's English mosaic floor and Italian marble stucco, highlights that have made the iconic building one of Sweden's favorite spots for more than a century.

    Architecture

    Refined Tradition

    A remarkable entrance of fine-cut, partially polished granite welcomes guests into the embrace of this meticulously restored neo-Renaissance building. The home of the Svea Fire & Life Insurance Company in the 1880s, and the work of top architects of that era, has been transformed into a contemporary masterpiece of elegantly refined tradition by designers Christer Svensson and Lars Helling. Neo-classical highlights are spread throughout the 127-room hotel, finding expression in fine details such as Italian marble stucco arches to carefully crafted wrought-iron work that reflects the New Renaissance. Dark wood paneling covers the bar and the designers Helling and Svensson chose the material for the interior design of the hotel’s rooms as well, using it to great effect in singular columns, on doors and ceilings.

    On the fifth floor, a dozen suites and doubles in an updated mood featuring shades of beige, cherry, and lime contrast a modern penthouse lifestyle with prime views of medieval Gothenburg.
