I love an interior where the old meets the new; where a modern, urban expression is complemented by characterful, original features and details. This real estate project in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a good example. It consists of an old railway station and farmhouse dating back to the 1880s converted into nine apartments in the center of the city. Loaded with cultural and historical value, and it is now a place a few lucky ones will be able to call home.
The building’s façade was beautifully renovated and, on the inside, elements such as the concrete flooring, arched windows, exposed beams and brick walls are a testament to the place’s past. The contemporary look and feel is enhanced by the high quality materials and finishings. Custom-built storage solutions, kitchens by Arrital, Silestone countertops, fittings from Buster + Punch, Italian granite tiles in the bathrooms… The apartments were built with high quality, functionality and great design aesthetics in mind.
The images below are from a unit styled by talented Emma Fischer. True to her signature style, the place has a cozy and relaxed atmosphere, and it is effortlessly chic. She tastefully curated the furniture and home accessories, too.
Noticed Gubi’s Beetle chairs? This molded plastic version was launched recently and it is relatively more affordable than the upholstered design. Plus, it is available in 7 shell colors and 10 base finishes, giving you ample possibilities. Shown here: New Beige shell + Conic black base.
I love everything about this shot above – A great gallery wall with prints by Silke Bonde and Atelier CPH, among others, Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 chair, a Taccia lamp… A beautiful monochrome palette with just a hint of blue.
