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.
Careful restoration and renovation of the uppermost sloped ceilinged space has resulted in a unique dwelling that is filled with premium materials, and executed to a high finish.
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.
A limestone splashback colors the wall behind the fitted cabinets which hide away an integrated fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Induction hob and stainless steel convection oven .
The spacious dining area would be a great place to entertain dinner guests.
A large white wood-burning stove offers heat to the lofty open plan apartment.
Skylights create a light and bright living room, where a modular gray sofa hugs the perimeter. An area rug forms a soft island on the wood floor, and a library of books make the place feel more homey.
This crisp bathroom scheme is tiled in Carrara marble over heated floors.
Limestone flooring decorates the simple hallway.
This snug bedroom solves the storage problem by concealing a spacious closet behind a velvet curtain.
