Niehku Mountain Villa
Riksgränsen, Sweden

Niehku Mountain Villa is located on Riksgränsen, the national border between Sweden and Norway, on the site of the legendary Malmbanan (Iron Ore) train line. Created as a comfortable home-from-home ideal for exploring the adventurous activities on offer in the area, the villa has been ingeniously designed to incorporate the history of the site. Architects Krook & Tjäder have retained the walls of the line’s old roundhouse so that they pass through the new building

The villa has won the ‘Best Hotel Interior’ at the prestigious Prix Versailles and was also named as the overall winner at the awards hosted at the UNESCO Headquarters, Paris in September 2019. The interior – which includes 14 double rooms, a restaurant, bar, lounge and spa – were designed by award-winning design agency Stylt, playing on and enhancing the architectural features from the roundhouse and adding rich materials and nods to local tradition that create a feeling of luxurious insulation from the cold outside. The name Niehku is the Northern Sami word for ‘dream’, and this feeling is encapsulated in the warm, industrial glamour of the scheme. In the bathrooms, GROHE Essence and Euphoria products have been specified in the GROHE Colors Brushed Hard Graphite finish for a perfect aesthetic fit.
