Swedish Attic Apartment

Situated within a highly coveted neighborhood in Södermalm, Stockholm, Sweden, lies an attic apartment that features approximately 64 square meters of chic modern interior design. The premium located host house, Mälaren Borgen, forms an unmistakable part of Maria mountain’s silhouette, which in itself is a historically important property that was built in 1889 according to Gustaf Hermansson’s drawings. The Swedish artist Eugène Jansson–also known as the Blue Painter, or “blåmålaren”, for his night-time land and cityscapes that were dominated by shades of blue–had his home there.

The attic situation creates a challenge in the layout of the kitchen, which has been met with great aplomb; over the induction hob the extractor chimney slices away cleanly beneath the sloped roof, a short run of smart black units nestle under the angular architecture, and a large white storage unit blends in with a neighboring wall so as not to over-clutter close quarters.
