With the ever increasing space constraints in the urban sectors, it is not feasible to come up with gardens and swimming pools and hence we can only add aesthetic value to whatever we get offered. This modern apartment located in Sweden is all about interior aesthetics that have been glorified using the North-European Interior Design Style. The flat has a couple of separated rooms and a living area that is connected to the hallway and the kitchen.
The living room is very functional and aesthetic and that is the reason it is one of the main assets of this apartment. The living area has a total of six windows which facilitate the entry of natural light throughout the day. This apartment also comes with a separate room that serves as a home theater plus there is a terrace for relaxation outdoors.
The Europeans are good at everything. Or at least that’s what it’s like to work for a design blog and all the homes we see in Paris, London and Stockholm are beautiful and perfect. But above all, there is one thing that the Europeans are especially good at: small spaces. As proof, look no further than this little Swedish apartment that packs a lot of life in a small space.
Above: Open shelves give a small kitchen an airy feel. To reduce the visual clutter, only simple, matching parts are displayed on the shelves; everything else slides into the cupboards below, where many drawers provide easy access. Small appliances save space and a deep sink with a sink is handy for washing dishes without taking up much space.
I like the fact that the wall separating the kitchen from the living room has a large window. The kitchen becomes its own space (and the grease and dirt are limited), but the window gives all rooms an open aspect.
The bathroom in the apartment is hidden under the stairs – you can see it on the floor plan of the room at the bottom of the page. It’s a “wet room” style meaning that (like the bathroom in one go) there is no shower cubicle and everything in the room is designed to withstand water. (Towels can be put in the closets if the place is not designed for a photo shoot.)
Up in the short corridor to the bedroom is another smart solution … a full height wall shelf that turns the hall into a lobby and walk-in closet. The whole place has an opening and liveliness that refutes its small base. These wise Europeans.
Forenom acquires Apartment HS AB as the largest company in Sweden.
Forenom, a growing provider of commercial buildings in the Nordic region, has completed its second acquisition in Sweden within a month.
With the purchase of Apartment HS AB with more than 500 apartments, Forenom is expanding its portfolio to offer more long term accommodation and “will become a leader in the Swedish housing market”.
In Stockholm alone, 25% of serviced apartments in the city of Forenom are covered.
Apartment HS AB was founded in 1996 to provide housing for employees temporarily working in Stockholm who need alternatives to the traditional hotel business.
Both companies specialize in providing “long-term customer hosting solutions” that aim to lead a normal life during their stay abroad.
The strategic goal defined by Forenom is to become the market leader in hotel services in Northern Europe with a wide range of accommodation services.
With the new agreement, the company strengthens its position in Sweden and now offers 1,800 overnight stays in serviced apartments and hotels in the country.
“We want to become number one in the Northern European housing sector, and in Sweden our next step will be to complement our offer with budget options such as hotels that are specifically tailored to business needs,” says Johannes Kangas, Director General of Forenom.
Forenom is the only provider of fully equipped apartments in the four Nordic countries of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland. It is market leader in Finland and Norway.
In Sweden, Forenom recently strengthened its portfolio with new offices in Malmö and Gothenburg and acquired the first Swedish hotel chain StayAt. With the acquisition of Apartment HS AB, the company is also the market leader for apartments in Sweden.
The Danish neighbor also has a long tradition of community movement. The idea of ”popular houses”, where several families lived together, had already surfaced in the 1930s, but it was the Swedish women’s movement that played a key role in the 1960s playing a key role in promoting coexistence as a means of sharing common tasks the genders. Today the association “Kollektivhus Nu” promotes the idea nationwide.
“The peculiarity of living together
in Sweden is the most
Properties belong to the state,
while in Denmark
They are private initiatives. ”
The peculiarity of living together in Sweden is that most real estate belongs to the state, while Denmark is a private initiative. Björn Palmqvist, resident of Stoplyckan, Sweden’s largest concubinage, explains: “The primary motivation for building these homes in the 1970s was political, as part of a larger social project of an active welfare state, and the state invested heavily to achieve it “Today, the political wind has changed, and recently built cohousing [communities] are now also private land.”
Stoplyckan is a good example of what state-owned cohorts look like: more than 400 people live there and the complex is divided into 184 apartments in 13 buildings. It is important to note that in Sweden most residential communities are built vertically, which is very different from Denmark or the United States, where living together often resembles small, horizontally built villages. The Swedish advantage, however, is that they are in the center of big cities.
In addition, the public part of a community such as Stolpyckan is that the meetinghouses share some of the common areas with public health facilities. The companies rent common areas – dining room, fitness rooms and other facilities – until 6pm. Then the coohusers use the common areas and rent them for a very small price. This reduces the high cost of maintaining large common areas and ensures that they are used by different groups and individuals. Another key benefit of Stoplyckan is that older people and people facing different challenges are also encouraged to use common spaces to be less separated.
