The Torby Hotel

KOKO3 and Poiat’s design of The Torby Hotel in Fiskars Village showcases Finnish craftsmanship through a blend of historic and modern elements.

  • Year 2022
  • Location Helsinki, Finland,
  • Type Hotel,
  • This charming hotel in Fiskars Village relies strongly on Finnish design and personalized service. The hotel itself consists of two buildings. The main building, dating back to 1832, once served as Fiskars cutlery workshop. Each of the 24 rooms offers picturesque views of Fiskars village.

    Owners Netta and Jussi assembled a team of lovely designers for the project. Jussi led the design efforts, and architect Lena Wecström handled architectural changes. In addition to KOKO3, Poijat contributed stunning loose furniture and fixtures that adorns the hotel’s cozy lounge spaces. The lighting drama was curated by Saas Instruments and Studio Mikko Laakkonen. Staying true to the spirit of the times, not everything was replaced during the renovation. For instance, the solid wood loose furniture in the hotel rooms, crafted by the skilled artisans of Nikari Oy, remains an integral part of The Torby. These pieces, along with the log sauna crafted by the same artisans, stand as enduring testaments to craftsmanship in The Torby today.
