Fyra, in collaboration with Werklig, have created a new hotel in Finland that is designed to feel homely and cosy despite covering an area of 24,000sq m (258,000sq ft) in the largest shopping mall in the Nordics.

The Original Sokos Hotel Tripla is located in Helsinki’s Mall of Tripla, which houses a shopping centre, an entertainment centre and a train station, homes and workplaces.

Fyra's aim for the project, which began in 2017 and was completed in 2020, was to "create a hotel that was literally the opposite of the hustle and bustle of its busy surroundings."

Modern Scandinavian design using light and light colours was embraced to make the 430-room hotel feel communal and cosy, with unnecessary elements eliminated wherever possible.

Room layouts were modelled on homes, with entry spaces and no high cabinetry, while furniture was custom-designed especially for the purpose.

There is a more porous, but still homely, feel to the lobby, which opens up into the mall and houses a bar and café.
