Ett Hem (“a home” in Swedish), now a member of the worldwide Small Hotels group, was a private residence built in 1910 for a diplomat’s family by architect Fredrik Dahlberg (1854-1932). Recently refurbished, this townhouse, situated in the peaceful, Larkstaden residential area of Stockholm, is a tranquil Arts and Crafts architectural design home-away-from home, steeped in the Scandinavian aesthetics where functionality meets beauty.
Another noted Stockholm design by architect Fredrik Dahlberg is the 1910 Skeppsbron 44, an office building in the Old Town/ central Stockholm. The ground floor houses the historic beer hall Zum Franziskaner.
