Gasp.

How could an apartment with peeling wallpapers and walls left unfinihsed looking so good?

This little 35 Stockholm apartment is the home of Karin Matz, a young Swedish architect.

Before Karin purchased the apartment in 2012, this space had been used for furniture storage for as long as 30 years. The last renovation was begun in the 1980’s by the previous owner, but did not see it finished. It was as if time has frozen since then. Wallpaper was half removed, kitchen faucet were sticking out, and there was no electricity what so ever when Karin purchased the apartment.

Read the full renovation story here, on how Karin has preserved the previous layers and stories of the space, and add the same time making it functional for her new story to take place.
