Sometimes what we need from a living space is a streamlined, functional environment from which we can thrive beyond the home – in the community, at work and out in the world.
It’s nice when life runs smoothly, and that’s why Kobu appreciates Textilgatan 23. Plus, it comes with a like-minded community – who’s up for a late night film screening after work?
In Hammarby Sjöstad, one of Stockholm’s newest, up-and-coming neighbourhoods and named by Lonely Planet as the ninth most futuristic neighbourhood in the world, an apartment has become available in a sought-after modern residential building.
In a neighbourhood where urban life blends with environmentally-friendly design and access to nature, the Orangeriet can be found in the HG7 residential development built by Oscar Properties in 2014. With its cool, grey concrete facade and bright, airy apartments, the building is well located with quick transport links to Södermalm island. It’s also not far from the waterside Carnegiebryggeriet brewery, a popular summertime social destination.
Set over 80 square metres, this three bedroom apartment is an uplifting place to live. Light bounces in through huge, floor to ceiling windows and off the light timber plank floor equipped with underfloor heating. In typical Scandinavian style, plenty of in-built storage is useful for keeping life streamlined.
Interior finishes are sleek and functional. Carrara marble worktops and splash backs bring some luxury to the minimal white Kvänum kitchen. Meanwhile, the white theme continues in the bathroom, where glossy tiles accompany the Duravit shower.
Seamless living continues in the large master bedroom, which opens up to a cosy wooden deck. There’s also a communal courtyard with plants and landscaping where residents gather to cook food and spend time together in the summer. And, this isn’t the only community perk - there is also a gym, spa, sauna and massage room, as well as a community room for group events and a cinema seating 15, booked through an online system. Healthy, modern living at its finest.
