Every now and then you come across a historic farmhouse in a big city. Today I cam across this farmhouse building in the center of Gothenburg. These farmhouse buildings were banned from city’s in 1910 so this building built in 1888 is of historic importance.
The famhouse buildings are now converted into stylish small homes and today we can take a peek into one of these homes. The maisonette (an apartment divided over two floors) is only 38sq. meter but thanks to high ceilings and it being split into two levels makes it a proper little home.
The building is situated on a quiet courtyard, with a little outdoor space that will enlarge the living area in the summer months.
Downstairs is the open plan living room and kitchen. High arched windows bath this room with light and give a nice view over the courtyard and surrounding historic buildings.
Though small, the living area has enough room for a comfortable sofa, a (round) dining table and a good size kitchen. The kitchen is from the Italian brand Arrital with details by Buster and Punch.
It’s smart that they didn’t use upper cabinets in this small room. It may give you extra storage but the kitchen will also look bulky which is not what you want in a small room.
A polished concrete floor runs through the ground floor and the walls have also been painted in a soft grey tone.
Upstairs, under the slanted ceiling, is the bedroom. It’s a light room thanks to the sky window thas has been placed above the bed.
The bedroom is big enough for a double bed and a desk. Built-in wardrobes have been added to create a clean and organized look.
Outside is a little terrace space. When both doors in the living area have been opened this is an extra living room in the spring and summer months. Luckily the courtyard also has greenery and architecture fans will love the view over the historic buildings.
