You must have wondered: a storage room turned into a fully functional apartment? Impossible. But it’s true! Swedish Architect Karin Matz turned this storage room into an organized and fully functional space.
The vision was simple. Make every part of this 36sqm space functional, which includes adding appliances, a bathroom, and room to divide spacial areas.
A little background on this home:
“When the apartment on Heleneborgsgatan in Stockholm, Sweden was for sale in 2012 it had been used as furniture storage for 30 years. The previous owner had begun a renovation in the 1980s but fell ill and the apartment was left untouched until his death. Time had been frozen; wallpaper was half removed, only a few tiles and a kitchen faucet were sticking out of a wall, there was no electricity and a bathroom only with signs of rats as inhabitants.”
