Wooden Details in a Light Duplex Apartment in Sweden

On the second and third floors of a Malmö apartment building, you will find this beautiful duplex apartment with light rooms and wooden details. The two-floor apartment was recently renovated and now includes a modern design paired with original wooden details.

The apartment was built in 1932, and while the home features original elements, the rooms feel fresh, modern, and light. They opened up the ground floor to create a big room with a hallway in the center. On one side is a charming sitting room with a wooden ceiling and on the other side a spacious kitchen. One floor up are two generous and light bedrooms.

The layout is rather unusual as the living room features a built-in cabinet with the washing machine on the right and a Burlington sink in the corner. With the vintage glass wooden doors you can close the living room from the rest of the ground floor spaces.
