Au Courant 1902 Abodes
The Eklund Stockholm New York design agency is known for their total overhaul of outdated buildings in order to produce stunning contemporary results. This latest project of updating a 1902 apartment building was quite the steep task, but I think a unanimous decision can be made that they sure did pull it off. Check out the pictures of the modern lines, stunning white and red color scheme and reclaimed finds within this two-bedroom Stockholm, Sweden apartment.
Implications - Reclaiming old finds can be some of the best ways to produce contemporary products that truly are built to last. As opposed to the modern building materials that are often cheaply made and not built to last, reclaimed, good-quality materials represent strong utility and timeless style.
