Nordiska Kök | The Architect’s Choice


When an interior architect designs her own home, the standards are understandably high. With an exacting brief where handcrafted meets industrial, this lakeside build in Sweden explores contrasts between materials, pushes boundaries and plays with technique. At the heart of the home is a Nordiska Kök kitchen. Commissioned by Swedish interior architect Hanna Bolin, the kitchen embraces this very same brief with clean lines, stainless steel, and the exceptional craftsmanship of hand-carved solid wood.

Crafted in neighbouring Gothenburg, this kitchen is built in a new frame design and features dark tones of stained oak that both connect and contrast with the home’s cedar shingle exterior. A countertop in Thala grey provides a soft and textural contrast against the dark stained oak cabinets, while the stainless-steel island and bespoke fan inject a bold industrial style.

A beautifully light and airy home with high ceilings, a minimalist fireplace takes centre stage in the living room while built-in oak shelving connects seamlessly with the kitchen cabinetry. The dark stained oak also creates a striking interplay with the kitchen’s flood of natural light.

The blend of rustic and industrial styles are truly evident in the incredible hand-carved solid walnut cabinet, while the site-built kitchen island in stainless steel and the hand-carved doors are, like the rest of the house, a play with dimensions and contrasting materials.
