A while ago we showed you the No. 5 House by Swedish firm Claesson Koivisto Rune, but we also wanted to make sure you saw their amazing apartment interiors. With their hand in everything from architecture to product design to jewelry-making, we think this is one of the most talented firms of the moment, and their loft designs offer some great ideas for dividing up space...
In this Stockholm Loft Apartment, the odd angles of the ceiling call for space-saving tricks. The glossy blue wall in the living room reflects light using an unexpected color. In the bedroom, a wall-mounted reading lamp leaves room on the small side table for books and an alarm clock.
The built-in bookshelves in this Stockholm Apartment extend over the doorways to create a long row of storage on the top shelf. At floor level, the shelves include a built-in credenza that holds firewood.
The designers played up the airy quality of this Stockholm Apartment by using light walls, a floating credenza, and small doses of bright color.
The studio space in this Stockholm Loft uses a central column to divide living, dining, and sleeping areas. Designers used light carpet in contrast to dark flooring to further delineate the separate areas.
