Interior design

Together with local award-winning design agency Koko3, Bob W is bringing comfy cool to the Kaartinkaupunki neighbourhood. 

This apartment is designed with comfy functionality in mind, fitted out with hand-picked Finnish vintage items and art-inspired, custom-designed elements, showcasing commitment to both sustainability and local culture. 

The interiors are masterfully crafted by local artisans including Diana Cerrada, Fabrica, Durat - capturing the essence of this Helsinki neighbourhood with a flair that is both elegant and approachably modern. Drawing inspiration from the local culture and energy, Koko3 describes the design process as an exploration of Kaartinkaupunki's identity—likening it to a "classy lady with swanky sneakers." This playful yet refined spirit is woven throughout the apartment.

Local amenities

Bob is all for staying active, so this space includes yoga mats, online access to Yogaia yoga studio, and access to a nearby local gym. Bob loves a great brekkie; you have the option to pre-purchase breakfast at Bob’s favourite neighbourhood cafes with an exclusive discount.

Seriously sustainable

Bob W Kaarti may be a neighbourhood OG and although its spirit remains intact, Bob’s refresh has earned it a LEED Gold Rating - no mean feat for a heritage building. Many of the design elements and features have been upcycled, maintaining a subtle nod to the building's previous life as the iconic Rivoli Hotel.
