The Townhouse in Landskrona Sweden

The Townhouse in Landskrona Sweden

by LWW on August 20, 2013

Known simply as The Townhouse, this modern home is a smooth white monolith parting the sea of tiled rooftops. The exterior certainly catches the eye but the bright white interior is our favorite part – three staggered levels allow abundant light to filter through, transforming the atmosphere as the sun passes through the Landskrona sky.

The architects at Elding Oscarson wanted to make sure the clients had ample light for the display of their collection of pop art paintings and sculptural furnishings. Even the rubber padded staircase has a loose mesh balustrade, a functional detail that creates intricate shadow landscapes at dusk and dawn.

The dining room has a great view of a small patio and the home office. We love the Börge Mogensen dining chairs, and how the little geometric candleholder echoes the curvature of the table legs. Marble kitchen countertops are the perfect complement to the carefully distressed concrete floor.

Upstairs you’ll find a bookcase designed by the residents, an oversized wicker floor lamp providing a secondary focal point. An open bedroom occupies the third level. Each space has a distinct personality.

We wish we could identify more of the contemporary and vintage furniture in the collection – every object seems to have significance, perhaps even a story to tell. Do you recognize any of the playful decorations used throughout The Townhouse? Share your knowledge in the comment section below!
