Located right in the heart of the Design District of Helsinki, Hotel Lilla Roberts, member of the “Small Luxury Hotels”, offers an elegant environment - a simultaneous dichotomy of the modern, and rich with history.
The history of the building is rich and fascinating: it was designed by architect Selim A. Lindqvist in 1909 as a power plant and administrational building and was completed in 1931 as planned by Helsinki’s official architect Gunnar Taucher. Then it has been for several years the residence of the Police department, before the recent renovation that followed the great project and design work made by interior architect Jaakko Puro and studio Puroplan.
In the stylish and spacious rooms you can relax on the confortable and particular rocking chairs Colimbas, made with fine materials and perfectly matching with the atmosphere of the location.
Jaakko Puro is an interior architect and managing director of Puroplan Oy, an architect and interior design company that is specialized in designing hotels and restaurants. As one of the leading companies in the Finnish interior design domain, they have created over 700 successful restaurant, hotel, ski resort, shopping mall and SPA projects. The company belongs to the highest class in the Rating Classification AAA®.
“I am equally enjoying planning a tiny sushi bar, where the first sketches may turn out to be a significant part of the final design, as well as working on a challenging large design hotel project demanding a long time commitment and concentration.”
