The Water Tower Project x Nordiska Kök


In the historic water tower, just outside of Stockholm, Nordiska Kök and interior designer WTP Studios have built a classic yet minimalist kitchen in warm-stained oak and vibrant arabescato marble.

The new kitchen in dark stained oak is located upstairs in the completely renovated two-floor apartment.

Taken out of operation in the '50s, the building was then used as a pharmacy laboratory and later as an artist's studio. In the mid-'90s, the tower was converted into apartments.

Christina's love of vintage pieces give the kitchen added charm.  

The tower, which dates back to 1910, is built of dark red bricks in a national romantic style and features unique architectural details including arched windows in differing sizes. Christina, founder of @wtpstudios has carried out a complete renovation of the apartment which is located over two floors in the tower. The new kitchen designed with Nordiska Kök is situated upstairs and features minimalist oak cabinets that have been stained with a warm cherry tone to match the floor and mid-century furniture. It also blends seamlessly with the building's original colour scheme. The veined marble creates a striking contrast against the dark stained oak, giving the kitchen a personalised and artistic expression.

Hidden appliances and a built-in fan create a calm and minimalist feeling.

An important element that sets the tone in the apartment is the contrasting arabescato marble. 

The inside of the cabinets is made in a white pigmented oak.

The kitchen matches the warm wood flooring and beautiful vintage mid-century furniture providing overall cohesion. 

Paper Porcelain by HAY sits atop the striking marble. 

The kitchen features beautiful architectural hardware including the bronze Maison Vervloet designed by Vincent van Duysen.

A column of open shelving allows for the display of beautiful art, books and objects.

Christina, founder of @wtpstudios, has together with Nordiska kök created the kitchen in The Water Tower project.

If you love this dark wood kitchen as much as I do, take a look at the Nordic Retro Kitchen, also by Nordiska Kök.
