With the building’s over a decade old history in focus, Fyra designed an addition of new rooms for Holiday Club Spa Tampere in the former Lapinniemi cotton spinning mill. While preserving the former factory’s architectural features, the rooms express a characterful, modern atmosphere.
Reflecting the history of the building, original fabrics produced in the spinning mill in the 1900s inspired the use of textiles, while Timo Sarpaneva’s prints from the 1960s are displayed above the beds as the centrepieces of the rooms. Lapinniemi’s cotton spinning mill was the first to produce fabrics using Sarpaneva’s pioneering Ambiente technique, which enabled producing watercolor-like, almost psychedelic patterns. The calm tones of the walls and floors contrast with the strong colour surfaces of the textiles. Fixed furniture are designed by Fyra.
