The property owner of wanted to transform the old office building into an experiential hotel. The challenge was to convert the infrastructure and functionality of an office to that of a hotel. Kohina’s architect needed to solve how to create a functional whole, including for example the laundry and breakfast functions, that would maximize the positive hotel experience. Kohina worked as a subconsultant to Jaakko Puro Ltd, who was responsible for the project as a whole.


The office space was successfully transformed into a hotel. The small and compact hotel no longer resembles an office and the functionality of the whole hotel works. Overall, Kohina enabled the creation of a relaxed boutique hotel experience. In 2018, Hotel Fabian was selected as the best hotel in Finland for the third time.
