The building was designed by Wingårdh architectural office and is 94 meters high and has 25 floors. Characteristic of the building is the round windows, to associate with footballs.
The hotel is part of the Choice Hotels chain.
The house with thousand eyes creates an illusion; like waves from a point in middle of the northern facade.
The image appears from a distance. It makes the stiff block soft, even wet. The impression is formed by windows in three different sizes: 1.4, 1.7 and 2 meters in diameter. The variations furnish the
standardized rooms with a kind of individuality, especially in corners.
The 400-room hotel is built next to Friends Arena, a 65 000 seats sports and event venue, and the upcoming Mall of Scandinavia, a shopping mall designed by Wingårdhs. It is operated by Nordic Choice Hotels and designated for their business range sector, with special attention to conferences.
