This brewery kept Stockholm supplied with beers and ales for nearly 300 years. It was converted into 18 ‘townhouse’ style apartments in 2015 by local practice Waldemarson Berglund Arkitekter.
Using a mix of brickwork, black steel, wide floorboards and flashes of copper, WBA has emphasised the building’s industrial history while giving it a light, contemporary feel.
This particular apartment is spread over two floors and 200 sq m, and includes three bedrooms, a living room and separate reception room.
An open-plan kitchen and dining room forms the heart of the living space. Flanked by floor-to-ceiling bookcases along one wall, it features a soaring seven-ft ceiling and arched, industrial scale windows that flood the room – and a mezzanine level tucked partially above it – with light.
Both the dining room and living room open onto a private patio area planted with orange trees.
