Architecture Johan Hellström

A striking monolith in a former quarry, the hotel is the brainchild of commercial photographer Johan Hellström.

The building stands out against the landscape while at the same time acting as a natural extension of it, reflecting the former quarry’s shapes and colors. Hellström’s reimagining of the factory’s existing infrastructure began with the crumbling worker’s canteen. He and his wife renovated the space to include 18 rooms, using recycled local limestone, concrete, and hardwood.

Interior design Johan Hellström

In the restaurant, which was formerly the factory workers’ canteen, heavy chains still hang from the ceiling.

Sleep in a grand studio, a spacious suite, or one of fifteen double or twin rooms, where you’ll enjoy a magnificent view of the Baltic Sea or the quarry’s dramatic gravel hills. The warm yet subdued interiors allow visitors to fully appreciate Gotland’s natural beauty. Rooms are styled in industrial shades of gray in order to complement their surroundings.

Nature A far-flung factory

Going off the beaten track is inconvenient by definition.

Far from the urban hum of Stockholm in a northeastern corner of Gotland island lies the remote peninsula of Furillen, still largely unknown to tourists. Craggy limestone formations stand beside deserted beaches, while sea birds nest among the ruins of an old gravel quarry.
