Our new feature here at Design Stockholm will be called Apartment Hunting. A little background - something I love to do is go through the real estate websites and check out what's for sale. I can't speak for all designers but finding a really neglected space with loads of potential is super exciting. The more work needed, the better. Apartment hunting is a bit of a cultural phenomenon here in Stockholm. Whether you're buying or renting, finding the right place has quite a significance here. Property values are high and the queues to rent are years long. It affects most of Stockholm's population in some way. But we'll take a look at the lighter side.
We will feature a property which is located in the local real estate listings and play around with it a bit. We'll have a "client" in mind so as to better decide how to space plan and decorate the space. Property value will be assessed. Or maybe sometimes we'll be wreckless and spend, spend, spend! I think we'll start off with the latter.
So as promised, I've brought you back to Södermalm. This property is a classic Stockholm floor plan with the original plan in place from when the building was built. Times have changed and so have ideas on what a great home should look and feel like. Take a look - tomorrow we change the space to reflect contemporary ideas on the ideal home. Hejdå!
