I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Scandinavians do it better. And in case you are not already convinced (yeah right), perhaps you will be after this post.

Läderfabriken is the latest project from the Oscar Properties, who are responsible for number of superb residential refurbishments in Stockholm – one of which I wrote about last year. Housed in a late 19th century factory building by the shore of Järla lake, the design for the contemporary apartments embraces the original industrial details of the building such as visible sprinklers, iron beams and columns. The apartments will be completed in 2013…. Yes, in case you hadn’t already noticed, these images are 3D renderings and brilliant ones at that.

This development is yet another example of what can be achieved when heritage bones meet modern design – beautiful, liveable spaces loaded with personality and atmosphere. Amen to that!

    Just love the capability of rendering. I am a budding residential drafter with 99% of cert IV done but not yet owning any economic software.

    […] what i admire most about the style of homes in sweden is this ability to keep things simple, modern yet inviting. this loft was no exception. rich in tones of black and camel and all white walls, it has a masculine feel without being too strong. the bathrooms may just be my favourite part of the home. oh and of course the incredible windows at the back of the loft. via + […]

    I am looking the manufacturer of the tiles in the bathroom – especially floor and the similar colored ones on the wall. Any chance you could share what model was used for the rendering?
