Welcome to a beautiful Scandinavian apartment characterized by elegance and warmth. Seen on Alvhem, this two room design wonder is located in the neighborhood of Orgryte, Gothenburg, Sweden and has a total surface of 55 square meters. As you can observe in the photos below, its overall layout inspires plenty of space, due to the light color palette and tasteful furniture choices. The small-to medium-sized apartment preserves some of the charming decades-old details belonging to its picturesque building dating back to 1928.
The sober white walls inspire an immaculate atmosphere, disrupted only by the colorful decorative pillow, paintings or flower arrangements. The cozy feel is further enhanced by the exposed beams and inclined walls, defining this lovely attic apartment located on the third floor of the traditional Swedish building. Throughout the day, natural light floods the house due to the numerous well placed windows, while creative light fixtures ensure a pleasant indoor atmosphere as soon as darkness takes over.
Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light
The best architects can create designs which will give clients and the public things they didn’t even realise they wanted, and this is especially important when architects are given the difficult brief of creating structures in much-loved, iconic areas.
