VALO Hotel & Work

VALO combines a hotel and office into one space in Helsinki, Finland.

Not only are customer experiences enhanced and natural resources preserved but we can claim to be the world’s first true dual use building.

Hotels and offices waste energy by being vacant most of the time. VALO utilises their spaces better with inspiring multiuse interiors yielding to different purposes throughout the day.

The first VALO opened in Helsinki in 2020. They're well on their way to becoming an international chain.

This project has been longlisted in the hotel and short-stay interior category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
