Studiomama Completes Renovation of Apartments in 1720s House in Stockholm’s Old Town
Studiomama have created two stunning loft apartments in Stockholm’s medieval old town Gamla Stan. The 200sqm apartments started as derelict office space on the top floors of a 300 year old building in the heart of the city. In a minefield of regulations and restrictions they have worked with conservation specialists to craft beautiful modern living spaces that 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.
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 walls 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 embedded in this old house and also create two flats that would be attractive for a modern life.
