A small flat, simple and with character

A small flat, simple and with character

Just by crossing the east gate 58 square meter floor, located on the top floor of a brick facade building in Gothenburg, we can perceive that we are facing a special home. The light invades everything by sneaking through its arched windows from which you can see the cranes of the port. Its irregular walls let us guess its more than 100 years. Its sloping ceilings that reach more than 3 meters cause a cozy and spacious feeling at the same time. Skylights invite us to dream watching the clouds of the sky pass or the starry nights.

Has chosen a simple decoration It helps to perceive space better. Few pieces, but very well chosen, that create an interior as functional as it is beautiful and that delimit the different rooms without losing the open concept. The color palette chosen is restricted to neutral tones, with profusion of whites, blacks and grays. The textures provided by wood, leather, natural fibers, textiles and metal give depth to the whole in a discrete way. The result is a simple home that welcomes and surprises.
