The old Turtagrø Hotel, which has been the starting point for climbing in the Hurrungane Mountains for more than a hundred years, burned down in 2001. The owner wanted to create some of the atmosphere of the old building – a recognisable scale, spatial sequence, colours and materials, relating to a nearby timber annex. Outside of this the requirement was for a hotel with a new architectonic expression and an efficient layout.

Sundsvall was at the end of the 1900th century, one of the wealthiest cities in Sweden. The wealth came from the forests in the north that provided the rest of the country with timber for paper- and construction needs. But in 1888 Sundsvall was struck by a fire that almost completely destroyed the old wooden town. The best architects in Sweden were assigned, and no expenses were spared to create the new city.
