Quality Hotel Friends in Solna, Sweden by Karolina Keyzer + Wingårdhs

 
October 7th, 2014 by Sumit Singhal

The house with thousand eyes creates an illusion; like waves from a point in middle of the northern facade. The image appears from a distance. It makes the stiff block soft, even wet. The impression is formed by windows in three different sizes: 1.4, 1.7 and 2 meters in diameter. The variations furnish the standardized rooms with a kind of individuality, especially in corners.
