This attic home is located in Stockholm, Sweden. Designed and built by Scandinavian Homes, the layout of this home is somehow simultaneously cozy and grand; the 163 square meter home has high reaching ceilings — coming in at almost 4 meters tall. There are windows on three sides of the home, allowing both natural light and views of the surrounding city.
