Gold & Grey Apartment

19 Oct 2015

This project by Richard Lindvall involved turning an old embassy in Stockholm into a private apartment.

Three walls were taken down to create one large room of 85 sq. m with a bit of a gallery feel. This room includes kitchen, dining and living area.

A grey scale with materials like concrete, Valchromat and brushed steel are recurring throughout the apartment. In contrast to this, three brass cubes were built that all serve a unique function, a kitchen island, a closet and a coffee table.

Both bathrooms have concrete flooring and walls covered in blasted limestone from the island of Gotland in the South of Sweden. In one of the bathrooms a giant concrete bathtub was built that accommodates the entire family of 5 people. The basin is also made in concrete.

The long towel rails in brushed steel were designed by Richard Lindvall and create a softer feeling in contrast to the hard materials and lines in general.
