Flat Gamla Stan

 

 

Location: The Old Town, Stockholm, Sweden

Completion: 1997

Brief: To renovate the entire flat in three levels and to design purpose made fittings and furniture

Starting point: The flat, except for the kitchen, was stripped back to its wooden joists

 

This long and deep space used to be the attic floor of a building from 1640. The entrance to the flat is at the third level, the bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom at the forth and the living room at the fifth level. A new glass mezzanine and a staircase was added to reach the higher level of the living room where books were stored and a window opened up towards a stunning view.
