The ornamental stucco master’s apartment
Photo: Johan StigholtThe ornamental sculptor Axel Notini's apartment at David Bagares gata 10 is a fine example of a wealthy middle-class home at the end of the 19th century.
Axel Notini was one of the foremost stucco craftsmen in Stockholm during the latter part of the 19th century. The house that he built for himself is richly decorated with ornamental plasterwork both inside and out. He used to invite prospective customers to visit him at home so that he could show off his skills.
The plasterwork has been restored to its original condition and his dwelling has been furnished in a style typical of his class at the time. Visitors can see what a drawing room, gentleman's study and master bedroom might look like in an upper-middle class apartment.
Viewings can be booked all year.
The apartment is in a building that is historically important and it has not been possible to provide access for wheelchair users unless accompanied by a helper.
