Located in medieval old town Gamla Stan of Stockholm, the derelict office spaces on the top floors of a 300-year-old building have been transformed into two stunning loft apartments.
This 200 sqm apartments remain sensitive to their ancient surroundings by stripping back to the skeleton of the structure and re-making an interior to the exacting standards of a new build.
The open double-height space incorporates discreet lighting integrated into wooden beams to visually lift the space, An atelier window has a spectacular view over the roofs and church spires of the old town.
Inspiration from designer:
Non-authentic layers were removed to reveal the original framework which has been restored to punctuate the open space and expose the structural wooden beams. With no straight wall or floor lines a new inside was carefully built to the high Swedish standard demanded of a new build. It was important to maintain the special atmosphere and charm that this old house embedded but also create two flats that would be attractive for a modern day life.
