Casa Ljungdahl, inner city blue is Note’s first private residence project. It is a large loft in Stockholm, in the area of Södermalm called Sofo. In the beginning of the project, the designers found three images: A brown cashmere coat, a pair of sand-colored sneakers and a plaza in Rome that became the foundation that influenced the renovation of this 1930s loft apartment. Stylish but relaxed with an international look resistant to time.
The task was to create a relaxed, soft environment and the main interior feature is a dark, low-lying base line that runs like a unifying horizon through the whole apartment.
The blue-gray line works as a storage unit and becomes a base for the ceiling height to shoot off from. The designers utilize the loft’s steep niches in a simple way by filling them with really deep drawers. This framing of the rooms create a classic salon atmosphere, and becomes a wink to architecture of the old days.
Nothing in the apartment is white. All walls and ceilings are painted in apricot pink and sandy beige tones which gives a soft, hazy atmosphere, creating a dynamic but gentle contrast to the blue-gray base.
