Storage walls define space within bright yellow apartment in Stockholm

Swedish studio Lookofsky Architecture has used bright yellow storage walls to maximise space in a renovated Stockholm apartment.

Belonging to a young couple, the 80-square-metre, one-bedroom 1920s apartment was last renovated in the 1970s. The owners invited Lookofsky Architecture to create a highly functional yet playful interior with plenty of storage space.

"The client was keen on something more informal and playful," said Lookofsky. "So it was a natural part of the project that we were going to work with some sort of colourful palette from the start."

"We proposed using yellow contrasting a very subdued green in our first design sketches, in order to let the function boxes in the living room and kitchen stand out clearly as a form," he continued.

"From there on we did a lot of colour testing on site where the client finally chose between different types of yellow and green."

Much like Lookofsky Architecture, Cubículo Arquitectos created extra storage in a small Porto apartment by installing custom-built cupboards and shelves around its existing structural columns.
