At Six was designed to be Scandinavia's best luxury hotel, says Universal Design Studio

Universal Design Studio's Hannah Carter Owers explains how her team transformed a brutalist bank headquarters into an art-filled hotel, in this movie filmed ahead of the AHEAD Europe hospitality awards. At Six opened earlier this year on Stockholm's Brunkebergstorg Square. It is home to one of Europe's most significant hotel art collections ? curated by Sune Nordgren, formerly of the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art. "The aim with At Six was to create Scandinavia's best luxury hotel, in a way that felt authentic and at home in a brutalist building," explains Owers, who is co-director of Universal Design Studio. The hotel is shortlisted in five categories at the upcoming AHEAD Europe awards: Urban Hotel (Conversion), Restaurant, Lobby or Public Spaces, Guestrooms and Bar, Club or Lounge. The building that houses it was first built in the 1970s, as part of a government initiative to replace the grand belle-époque architecture of Stockholm's old centre with brutal modernity. It was originally designed as a hotel, but instead became the headquarters of Swedbank.
