An introduction to Stockholm Apartment

How would you describe the Stockholm Apartment in a nutshell?

It's a centrally located and modern apartment within a historic building in Gamla Stan, the heart of Stockholm.

What is the story behind the Stockholm Apartment, what was your inspiration to create it?

The house has been in my wife’s family for around 300 years and has been inherited down the female side. We occupy an apartment on the top three floors of the house and decided to rent out this apartment on the second floor. 

As we are both architects, we are interested in historic buildings and the merging of original details with contemporary elements. We recently renovated the apartment and opened in June 2023 to share the space with the rest of the world. 

How would you describe the atmosphere, architecture and interior design of the Stockholm Apartment?

Our idea was to use traditional materials and methods but with a contemporary layer, so that you get the best of both worlds. All of the wooden details and doors are original, with most dating from the 18th century, and we tried to retain traditional nuances and colours, without being too rigid. We wanted to bring freshness to the space. 

To you personally, what is so special about the Stockholm Apartment?

I think the building’s history and traditional design, coupled with its contemporary renovation, create a calming and soothing space. You feel both part of the history and the modern world.

Being in the middle of everything also makes it special. This is where I live but it’s also where I’d want to stay if I was visiting Stockholm.

Stockholm Apartment rooms & rates

You enter the building from the small and charming alleyway up a flight of stairs and on the second floor you find the apartment. You are welcomed by a living and dining room with beautiful wooden floors and two large windows looking over the pedestrian street Västerlånggatan. The large windows and high ceilings make the apartment feel very spacious, despite its 42-square-metre footprint. 

From the living room, there is a hallway that leads to the kitchen, which is quite small and with a table that seats two people. If you look out the window, there are views of a large German church. Next to the kitchen is a small bathroom with a toilet and a shower, plus a window that allows natural light to flow in. 

The living room also connects via a double door to the bedroom, which faces the pedestrianised street below. For some reason, they kept a passage between the bedroom and the kitchen (now there are shelves there) but it creates a nice atmosphere in the sleeping space.

Things to do in Stockholm

  • Art / Culture
  • Shopping / Markets
  • Night life
  • Boat trips

The archipelago is fantastic and is easily accessible, with regular ferries whisking you away to the islands. There are also inner-city islands that can be reached on foot and many of these are more like green spaces. The Museum of Modern Art is located on one, as are many restaurants. Having these green spaces is a big appeal for both tourists and locals. I’d also recommend visiting the new museum of photography, Fotografiska, which is just around the corner. 

The location of Stockholm Apartment

The apartment is located on the island of Gamla Stan (Old Town), which is the heart and historic part of Stockholm, and everything is nearby. Beautiful houses from as early as the 15th century surround the winding alleyways. There are lots of good cafes and restaurants just minutes away and the Royal Palace is two minutes’ on foot. Some parts of the area are quite touristy but you can easily avoid them if you don’t want that. It’s a friendly, calm and quiet neighbourhood that’s well-suited to visitors. 

Beyond the Old Town, Stockholm has expanded in an interesting way, with “city centres” on both sides. To the south is the hipster area of Södermalm while to the north is a more upmarket, business centre. Both are within walking distance, as is the ferry terminal with boats to the archipelago (four minutes on foot). 

If you’re flying into Stockholm Arlanda, the airport shuttle stops at the Stockholm railway station, which is just one stop away by subway or 10 minutes’ walk from the apartment. 

When is the best time to visit Stockholm?

Summer is busy, especially in Gamla Stan, and I prefer the beginning and end of the season. Late spring and early autumn are both good times to visit, particularly May and September. I’d also recommend December as we have a big Christmas market on one of the old squares that is really beautiful on a snowy, winter’s day.
