A Curious Stockholm Attic Retrofit

Stockholm attic1 architecture

Here is another gorgeous rooftop retrofit from one of the many the generous attics of the old city of Stockholm.

The ancient city seems to boast an abundant supply of attic potential.

In this one, a clean slice has been made through the apex of the roof to yield a big modern sun-filled big glassed space.

With half the gable roof gone, sheltering under half of it must feel like looking out from a cave-like space.

However there is some strange decorating in the house.

The kitchen has something lurid going on with fluorescent green plastic.

And the bathroom is tarted up with random lurches into a variety of looks that lead almost to student-decorating territory.

While the master bedroom is also devoid of an organised decorating intent, here the effect is sweetly unassuming and innocent, as if the occupant has been simply too busy to think about such matters.

But the new living space carved out from the attic is modern and warm.

    I wish my attic space looked like that – modern and inviting. I especially like the line of wall sconces (or is that lit shelving?) by the TV. But, I do not understand that green lighting in the kitchen! That couldn't make food (especially meat) look very appetizing, could it?

    Gorgeous images! Such a peaceful retreat!…

    Hadn't thought of that! Agreed
