A Swedish Penthouse with Industrial Touches
This penthouse apartment in Sweden truly ticks some boxes for me. It has – of course – stunning Scandinavian design. But also industrial touches, a walk in closet ánd a bathroom with sauna. Now that’s some luxury.
The penthouse apartment is located in Sweden’s second city Gothenborg. The building was built in the 1920s and designed by architect Nils Olsson. On the top floor of this apartment building you’ll find our penthouse.
The penthouse is 166 square meters big and has two bedrooms, a tv room, two bathrooms (one with a sauna), a walk in closet ánd a roof terrace overlooking the city. Sounds good right?
This history of the building is visible in the open plan living room and kitchen. Of course the first thing you notice is that stunning exposed brick wall. Which gives this Swedish penthouse an international touch.
The dark wooden beams add extra character and warmth to to living room.
With windows on two sides of the open plan space this room is definitely bright.
The ceiling is slightly lower in the kitchen area but it is an absolutely wonderful space. The Marbodal kitchen has a kitchen island and a wine cooler. And with windows on one side it’s bright and offers a lovely view.
The window seat, made from the same cabinets as the kitchen, is a lovely spot to read or socialize while you’re cooking.
Connecting to the living room is the tv room. There are no internal doors here which adds a nice flow to the space.
From the hallway you can step right into the building’s elevator.
A moody green hue with pink curtains in one of the bedrooms. Currently the penthouse offers two bedrooms but you can easily add one or two more.
Double industrial glass doors lead to the spacious walk in closet. Hello luxury!
The master bedroom is painted in a soft grey hue and has a luxury hotel look.
One of two bathrooms with lovely floor tiles and a blue vanity.
The roof terrace offers a lovely view over Gothenburg. The penthouse also offers a balcony which isn’t pictured. Isn’t this penthouse apartment amazing? I love the combination of Scandinavian and industrial style.
