Stenungsbaden Yacht Club’s Villa JC Stevens won the award of best interior design (conference, meeting & banqueting areas) at the European Hotel Design Awards. The hotel from 1963 is owned by Choice Hotels Scandinavia and has been renovated by design firm Stylt Trampoli. The villa has an intimate feel with tasteful design where keywords are Gant, Ralph Lauren and Newport, undoubtedly inspired by the America’s Cup. Not only is Villa JC Stevens named after the very first captain to win the America’s Cup with the the ship America, the cup’s namesake, the 12 rooms are individually designed with the same number victorious ships in mind.
Funny fact: Both owner of Choice Hotels Scandinavia, Petter Anker Stordalen and Creative Director of Stylt Trampoli, Erik Nissen Johansen are Norwegians.
