This luxury penthouse Aschebergsgatan 41 in Stockholm is designed by Swedish firm Kanozi Arkitekter.  The apartment of 180 square meters is a home for a family with two kids. The home is spread over two floors, with four rooms - two bedrooms with bathrooms for both children and adults are upstairs. On the first floor of the light-filled home are the living and dining areas along with the kitchen. A wooden staircase leads up to the second-floor mezzanine, which features a suspended walkway that connects the stair landing to an open area that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms and the rooftop wood terrace. There are also no fewer than four terraces! Two little bigger on the ground floor, and two smaller on the upper level, from which you look down over the two below it. The design of the mezzanine, which offers full view of the first floor from above, is in keeping with the penthouse’s airy appeal.

"In view of our children, 4 years and 6 months old, would grow up in Stockholm, it seemed especially important to have close to green spaces, and create a bright and spacious home. Therefore, ceilings, walls and floors white, and so do all the windows that we have a beautiful play of light in the home. Otherwise, lofts often seem drab, and there we wanted to get away, "says home owner. Many personal touches, both in architecture and interior design, creating an exciting atmosphere in the home. The roof has many unusual angles and cathedral ceilings are quite distinct from surface to surface. In the open living room ceiling height is about 3.5 meters, while in the upper bathroom is low.

Amazing interior space is painted in white with interesting elements such as unusual  stairs leading to the upper floor and fireplace placed in the middle of  living area. High ceiling subsitutes for hip attic roof and emphasizes the aesthetic value of this wonderful apartment. Interior stylist Sara Sjögren - portfolio (page) stands behind amazing decor. Mostly white, black and grey colors mixed with pieces of furniture in natural wood give warm feeling to the penthouse atmosphere.
