      About Your Stay

      Far from the busy urban hum of Stockholm, in a northeastern corner of the island Gotland, lies the remote peninsula of Furillen, still largely unknown to tourists. Craggy limestone formations stand starkly beside deserted beaches, and sea birds nest among the ruins of an old gravel quarry. Accessed by a high-speed ferry or plane, and a 45-kilometer drive, the striking gray structure of the Fabriken Furillen is a eco-friendly design masterpiece created by photographer Johan Hellström. Inside, you experience a warmly welcoming interior that utilizes modern Scandinavian design and incorporates myriad shades of gray and white. Visitors can discover the fishing hamlet of Lergrav, take a ferry to the island of Fårö or traverse the hidden reaches of the peninsula on a "Skeppshult" bicycle, provided free of charge. Afterwards, enjoy a meal in the restaurant, prepared with local and seasonal ingredients fresh from the hotel's own farm.

      A striking monolith in a former quarry

      The hotel’s design is the brainchild of commercial photographer Johan Hellström. The building stands out against the surrounding landscape while at the same time acting as a natural extension of it, reflecting the former quarry’s shapes and colors. Hellström’s re-imagining 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 materials such as limestone, concrete and hardwood.

      Interior Design
      Industrial shades in a cocoon of comfort

      The warm yet subdued interior allows visitors to fully appreciate Gotland’s natural beauty. Rooms are styled in industrial shades of gray in order to complement their surroundings. However, the comfort on offer is anything but industrial: hotel rooms are equipped with luxurious Hastens beds, B&O televisions and stereos, free wireless Internet and Byredo bathroom amenities.

      In the restaurant, 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.

      Johan Hellström

      Johan Hellström first made his name as a commercial photographer, traveling across the globe in search of the perfect shot. Having spent several summers on the Swedish island of Gotland, Hellström saw an opportunity to create a truly singular travel experience. He and his wife sold their belongings and bought the limestone quarry on Gotland's nearly deserted Furillen peninsula. With the Fabriken Furillen, he aims to give visitors that same breath of fresh air.
