In Kista Science City, Stockholm, Sweden, this unusual skyscraper tower, named after the Swedish Crown Princess Victoria, completed 2011. Scandic Hotel chain is renting Stockholm’s tallest building, also the tallest hotel in Scandinavia. Elected as the hotel building of the year 2012 at the World Architecture Festival i Singapore.

Scandic Victoria Tower, Kista, Stockholm, Sweden

The Scandic Victoria Tower Hotel is designed by the architect Gert Wingårdh, 117 meter (384 ft) and did cost SEK 600 million (around USD 90 million) to be built. The hotel building is totally covered in glass – I just love this unusual patterned architecture!

My photo above doesn’t quite do it justice. I don’t exactly love it less when also discovering that the inside interior is decorated with design furniture from Vitra, Montana and Flos…

If you happens to be nearby: take the elevator up to the skybar at 34th floor and sit down and sip on a glass of Champagne with a view over Stockholms Silicon Valley.

This is the tallest hotel building in Scandinavia, but the tallest building in Sweden is actually Turning Torso in Malmö which I also adore and wrote about earlier.

    This photo kinda looks like a painting to me; the blue sky is amazing. I’d definitely visit this gorgeous tower and throw a party maybe. ;P


    Very interesting building. I wonder what it looks like from other angles. A great photo, the sky and clouds in the background look great.
