EVERYTHING IN 36SQM
HB6B is a residential project by architect Karin Matz in Stockholm, Sweden, which recovered an old apartment used as furniture storage for 30 years. The previous owner had begun a reform during the 80s but fell ill and the apartment was "frozen in time" for years. In a city like Stockholm with an enormous housing shortage, it is difficult to understand how a place like that was left abandoned for so long. When Karin began the recovery of space, everything was in half: wallpaper was half removed, only a few tiles and a kitchen faucet were sticking out of a wall. There was no electricity and the rats were the only inhabitants.
The aim of the architect was to recover the house without losing its history and preserving some of its memories.After the intervention, the result is an apartment of 36 square meters, divided into two parts, where everything is impressively fitted.
