From the same brilliant people who brought us the Harads Hotel concept, comes the colourful Humlegården apartment in Stockholm, inspired by the work of Swedish artists and architects like Carl Larsson and Josef Frank.
Tham & Videgård Hansson architects designed a multi-coloured floor plan, which is also meant as a reminder of the foliage in the nearby Humlegården park, changing its colours with the passing of the seasons. The apartment was part of a high-class turn of the century apartment (late Jugend / Art Nouveau (1800/1900) that had been totally altered, and even for some time transformed into a hotel, leaving very few traces of the original. The result is an experiment within the Swedish traditional use of color and patterns in interiors. The overlapping colors transform the layout of the apartment and add a new structure of spaces linked to each other across the original plan. The parquet floor also functions as a unifying system that offer design possibilities. Once the colors were set up in different shades, they developed each room in relation to the others.
