Something most of us find important when looking for a home is the view. Having a great view can have a deciding effect on the consideration of a prospective home and can diminish any doubt we might have about whether or not it suits our needs. This is especially true in urban environments where most of us have a view that’s limited to our neighbours’ windows, and as exciting as that can be, we might occasionally want to look out and see something… more.
This is definitely more.
At the top of Stockholm’s Tuletorn the view is breathtaking. This apartment has an L-shaped balcony covering the full length of two sides which leaves you with a very wide south-west view of the city below – and way beyond.
“With Tuletornen, we’re doing something extraordinary and applying a new standard of design to buildings in Sweden. The idea is that we’re not following some kind of streamline boring kind of look, instead we’re adding something new and of value. The thing is, you’re not being offered to buy only a real cool apartment but a lifestyle, a home.” say Simon Davies and Thomas Cederlund, the interior designers for the building. The tower itself was designed by Vera architects.
The lifestyle they refer to – just in case the view isn’t enough – is delightfully apparent once you look inside. The minimalistic interior is characterized by subtlety, white & grey marble, light wooden floors against whites and barely-there pastels.
The decorating then creates an enjoyable contrast by mixing modern functionality with rustic and retro.
