“Master class in style” opens in Stockholm

Miss Clara is the former Ateneum school for girls

Design Hotels has announced the rebirth of one of Stockholm’s most striking Art Nouveau buildings. Built in 1910, the former Ateneum school for girls has been transformed by the Nobis Group into a new hotel in the evolving City district.

Taking its name from Clara Strömberg, the school’s first headmistress, Miss Clara is described as “an old soul with a contemporary heart”.

High ceilings, big windows and an original spiral staircase recall the building’s past life, while restoration has eased the schoolhouse and its 92 rooms, two suites and two “etage suites” into the modern day. Swedish design and craftsmanship were used for the rooms. Rates run from SEK 1,590 (€177) to SEK 9,000.

Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh paid special attention to the original traits of the building, where the arched windows, which overlook Sveavägen Boulevard, are treated as centre stage. At street level, a restaurant and bar are open to both visitors and locals.
