Design Crush: An Industrial Warehouse in Sweden

Happy Monday! Yesterday I was searching for some design inspiration and I came across a beautifully designed apartment building in Sweden. I realized it’s the perfect Design Crush to kick off this week! I visited Stockholm last year and although I only had a few days to explore I feel as though I got a good grasp on the Swedish design sense. Everything was well designed and impeccably detailed. I loved almost every space I stepped into! The spaces I’m sharing today are located just outside of Stockholm, on the Jarla lake.

The building, Läderfabriken, was built in 1888 and was used to manufacture transmission belts for several years. In 1905 the factory was used to manufacture vinegar, until about 1950, when it was used to house small businesses. It’s recently been renovated by Oscar Properties and has been converted to apartments.

The original industrial details remain in tact, including visible sprinklers and iron beams and columns. Glass has reused been mixed with the woods to create a warm and inviting feeling.

Because of the high ceilings many of the spaces allow for mezzanines, which creates larger living spaces and adds character to the homes.

In true Scandinavian style the home is finished in greys, blacks and whites which creates a simple yet sophisticated look.

The bathrooms in the apartments are also fitted with 20’s era black and white tiles often seen in New York City.

I’m excited by this week’s Design Crush. It has definitely inspired me and I know I’ll be thinking of blacks, whites and greys all week – as usual! What do you think of this renovated industrial Swedish factory?
