Simple But Grand Surrounds Stockholm.

On many occasions, I stumble upon websites of various designers that I immediately bookmark for later investigation (my so-called BFLI). This morning, I was sucking on my last drop of a ritualistic Vanilla Soy Coffee, and I found out about the young Swedish architecture firm Arkitekstudio Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff (say that ten times fast!). And also known as WRB. Founded by Natascha Racki, this studio in Stockholm focuses on smaller thoroughly designed homes. I love the blend of nature versus nurture… there is a very linear simplistic look and feel within the twelve projects shown in WRB’s portfolio. Enjoy it stateside!

Lots of views to the outside keep it light and airy.
