A two-storey apartment in a historic water tower on the outskirts of Stockholm has seen a very chic transformation by interior designer @wtpstudios.

Dating back to 1910, the converted red brick building features arched windows in different sizes, giving the interiors a range of different sized vignettes over Stockholm.

In the 50's, the tower was taken out of operation and was then used as a pharmacy laboratory and later also as an artist's studio. The tower was converted into apartments in the mid-1990s.

One of these apartments features a highly contemporary, chic and minimalist interior, blending modern design ideas while also highlighting original features like the arched windows.

The two storey apartment is crowned by a modern kitchen by Nordiska Kök at the top. Christina, founder of @wtpstudios, worked together with Nordiska Kök to create the perfect kitchen for this space – with dark stained oak cabinetry to mirror the colour palette of the brick building and parquet flooring.

The kitchen has been stained with a warm cherry tone that matches the floor and mid-century furniture, and blends well into the building's colour scheme.

The fridge and freezer are cleverly concealed behind wooden doors, while the fan is also built-in to add to the clean, minimalist look.

The veined Arabesco marble creates contrast in the otherwise calm kitchen, adds interest and balances the warm palette with something more crisp and clean.

The rest of the apartment is equally paired-back and chic, with marble surfaces, steel framed doors, and curved, slatted wood partition walls.

The original windows are a charming and captivating feature, and add interest to the modern bathrooms and bedrooms.
