Designed with attractive waterfront vistas, it was intended to be and has been successful in attracting the urban middle-class.

Since , the Kockums Crane had been a landmark in Malmö and a symbol of the city's manufacturing industry, but in it was disassembled and moved to South Korea. In , Malmö gained a new landmark with completion of Turning Torso , the tallest skyscraper in Scandinavia.

Malmö, like the rest of southern Sweden, has an oceanic climate. Despite its northern location, the climate is surprisingly mild compared to other locations at similar latitudes, or even somewhat farther south, mainly because of the Gulf Stream.

Many of the smaller buildings from this time are typical Scanian: Recession followed in the ensuing centuries. The next expansion period was in the mid 19th century and led to the modern stone and brick city. This expansion lasted into the 20th century and can be seen by a number of Art Nouveau buildings, among those is the Malmö synagogue.

Malmö was relatively late to be influenced by modern ideas of functionalist tenement architecture in the s. Around , the government initiated the so-called Million Programme , intending to offer affordable apartments in the outskirts of major Swedish cities. But this period also saw the reconstruction and razing of much of the historical city centre. Since the late s, Malmö have seen a more cosmopolitan architecture.

That was a bit more involved with molding, paint, filler pieces around the sides, and shelves — but still really doable. You can read all about the process here. But back to our built-in dresser at the beach. I promised at the start of this post that this latest project was an extremely easy one. It basically boiled down to using trim pieces to make it look built-in, then adding a few customized elements — like leather hardware pulls and a thicker wood top — to make it a little more interesting and upgraded than the extremely ubiquitous dresser that we started with.

Originally this room was completely open to the back staircase… meaning it was completely open to the kitchen downstairs you could hear everything and anyone could run up without encountering a closed door.

At one point we were actually going to frame it in with a door and everything, but after living with it for a while we decided it might make this landing a little crowded and since the stairs are narrow already we preferred something that would keep the space feeling more open and less packed.

Lucky for us, the space was almost exactly the width of an Ikea Malm dresser. But to make it look like a built-in piece, we had to start by prying off all of the existing trim around the floor of that little nook. I just aligned them with the front edge of the dresser and fired my nail gun through the side of the dresser into them and the wall behind them to hold them there. In addition to nailing through the sides of the dresser, we used the supplied hardware to anchor the back of the dresser to the wall.

You can also see in the photo above that I reinstalled the baseboard for that side filler piece to rest on it extended just a bit behind the dresser on each side but waited to add the quarter round until later. Continuing the quarter-round along the front of the Malm is a big part of making it look built-in and a lot more seamless. Fortunately, we had a scrap piece of butcher block counter leftover from the kitchen that was large enough.

We only had one shot at this, so we took our time!
