Built on the Helsinki’s Boulevard in the 1960s, this office building got a new life as the first IHG Indigo chain design hotel in the Nordic countries. In the heart of the Punavuori design area and in the vicinity of a lively shipyard, the hotel wants to highlight the story of its surroundings through, for example, it’s interior design. The hotel’s Boulevard facade was fitted with an impressive zinc-plated curtain, hand-made by over 70-year-old Esko Kivi. The thermal insulation of the facade makes the building very energy-efficient, and the property was the first hotel In Finland to be awarded the Gold level LEED certification. The design was implemented using the Building Information Model (BIM) software.
