Strandvägen 1 Stockholm has made the International Design & Architecture Shortlist.
Strandvägen 1 combines a classic bistro-style restaurant with a café offering a more edgy attitude. Linked by a street terrace overlooking Berzelii Park and the waters of Nyboviken, Strandvägen 1 is located amidst the prime real estate of Stockholm. The Art Nouveau majesty of the Dramaten, the Royal Dramatic Theatre, across the street, leads to the luxury retail paradise of Birger Jarlsgatan with Stureplan beyond.
Following their successful collaboration at the nearby Lydmar Hotel, owner Pelle Lydmar and Erik Nissen Johansen, creative director and founder of interior designers Stylt Trampoli from Gothenburg have joined forces once again. This time with a relaxed dining experience that reflects the assured provenance of the neighbourhood with as much rock and roll as it can take.
“Stylt Trampoli just ‘get’ our target audiences and here they have delivered two related but differing back-to-basic places to eat,” explains owner, Pelle Lydmar. “They reflect my passion for simplicity and the best of quality.”
Stylt Trampoli have liberated the cramped space of a former bank transforming it into an open restaurant with 100 covers that flows around two sides of an island bar. The transparency of this layout allows arriving guests to see in a glance the whole space, including the semi-open kitchen.
“Our aim at Strandvägen 1 has been to combine sophisticated yet understated interiors with true operational efficiencies that together let the food do the talking,” says Nissen Johansen of an overall design ethos with an urbane slant that transcends time.
