With a total surface of 50 square meters, this lovely crib discovered on Alvhem features an open plan layout and is described by the Swedish as having one room plus kitchen. The apartment is located on the fifth floor of a turn of the century building in Gothenburg, offering charming rooftop views. As you enter, you are greeted by a bright interior, with white floor and walls enhancing the feeling of space.
Living zone, kitchen and sleeping area are all arranged in an open plan, which gives this place its originality. The corner building location of the apartment was taken advantage of by the designers, who anticipated the living-room bedroom curving effect. With the bathroom being in the middle, the living area is somewhat separated by the sleeping wing, while technically still being in the same room. We enjoyed this nugget of creativity and decided to share it further. Have a look and tell us what you think!
Adding a modern extension to a building is a challenging task. When MU Architecture Studio were commissioned to expand the living space of a private residence located on the second floor of a brick building, the architects came up with the idea to build an extra level. The crib was thus converted into a duplex, by linking the new floor through elegant stairs in glass and wood.
G is for Frank Gehry in our seventh A-Zdvent calendar window. The American architect’s Guggenheim Museum in the Spanish city of Bilbao (pictured) famously sparked a trend for cities commissioning iconic buildings as catalysts for regeneration, while other high-profile projects include his Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the upcoming new headquarters for Facebook.
