A few years ago I had seen images of an incredible apartment where the oversized parquet flooring was an undulating expanse of changing colour and it had somehow slipped from my radar and I have just found some images of it to remind me of its splendor.
By the fabulous Stockholm based practice, Tham & Videgård Arkitekter, this is a rare and extraordinary example of architecture full of bold sensual colour. For more about the Humlegården Apartment see: http://www.tvark.se/humlegarden/
In their own words:
“Departing from the interior use of colour and pattern developed by Swedish artists and architects like Carl Larsson and Josef Frank, this apartment also relates directly to it’s setting overlooking Humlegården park, where the greenery outside changes with the season. From winter grey and black, to bright and deep green in summer, to orange, red and yellow during autumn.”
