Bringing the Art, One Post At A Time

A Swedish Flat That Reflects the Change of Season

In Building & Design Art on April 8, 2009 at 3:18 am

This apartment at Humlegarden in Stockholm, Sweden, was transformed by architects Tham & Videgard Hansson. Floors and walls are parqueted in colors to reflect the spectrum of seasonal color change exhibited in the garden outside. The architects transformed the turn-of-the-century art nouveau flat into a crazy quilt of modulated color, offset by stark white furnishings. I can’t imagine being sad in the crazy herringbone decor straight from the Crayola 64 box with built-in sharpener.
I recommend you hit the jump above to see all of the images, but you can get a good feel for the tonal change from the floor plan below.
