The assignment was to turn an old embassy in Stockholm into a private apartment.
Three walls were taken down to create one large room of 85 square meter with a bit of a gallery feel. This room includes kitchen, dining and living area.
A grey scale with materials like concrete, Valchromat and brushed steel are recurring throughout the apartment. In contrast to this, three brass cubes was built that all serves a unique function, a kitchen island, a closet and a coffee table.
Both bathrooms have concrete flooring and walls covered in blasted limestone from the island of Gotland in the south if Sweden. In one of the bathrooms a giant concrete bathtub was built that accommodates the entire family of 5 people. The basin is also made in concrete.
The long towel rails in brushed steel were designed by Richard Lindvall and creates a softer feeling in contrast to the hard materials and lines in general.
What I like is that the combination of the colors of those materials goes extremely well together. The matt finish of the Valchromat and concrete together with the shiny brass.
