This historic old Post Office building in heart of Gothenburg, Sweden, originally designed in neo-classical style by famous architect Ernst Torulf, has been transformed to a stunning hotel.
The project stands out as a great example of modern architecture and owes its contemporary style to Riverstone. An ambitious architect, ably assisted by expert stone and glass contractors, came up with a solution in designing a façade installed with dimensional stone at only 1cm in thickness.
Random sheets of Honed slate streak across the exterior of this building (900 m2) with the contrasting copper materials providing a towering presence over the central station area.
Riverstone was specifically chosen by the architects for the external cladding due to its hard-wearing surface, which means there is virtually no need for maintenance, and its unique grey/green which conveys character to the project.
