Idea for tiny apartment design

This tiny apartment in Stockholm, Sweden had been nothing more than a space for storage for 30 years.

During that time, the owner had started a renovation in the 1980s but that was halted when he became sick. So the apartment continued to sit until 2012 when it went on the market.  Karin Matz stepped in to bring the HB6B apartment up to date while keeping the history and layers that had been developed over the years.

The apartment is laid out over a mere 36 square meters. Despite its diminutive size, the apartment still feels open and light.

The apartment is divided into two parts. First there’s a built-in structure, which they based on an IKEA kitchen unit. All of this was completely renovated down to the electrical work and the painted white walls. The unit makes up the bed, storage, kitchen, and wardrobe all in one, compact space.

The other part is made up of the surfaces that have been left untouched for the last 20 years.

The bathroom connects the two parts. Underneath the elevated bed, there’s space for an almost walk-in closet.
