A heritage to care for
At Alvhem, we have great passion for the home. To us, a home does not end by the door. It goes a lot further than that.
It is the choice of neighbourhood that influence where we decide to move. And behind each neighbourhood are the people. They are the heart of the neighborhood. It is also the people living there who create the homes. Many years of wear and tear produce the patina we love so much. When we have the pleasure of visiting one of these homes and can see the trace of patina in the original details, the stairwells or woodwork, that’s when we thrive the most. You see, in our eyes all these beautiful homes from the turn of the of last century are an inheritance to cherish and take care of. For the future. For the next couple, family or generation who plan to build their home there.
We think the word is so significant we chose it as part of our company name. Alvhem (hem =home). We view a home as the blend of ones own history and the apartments. A place where all the things we have fallen in love with come together. The new, the inherited, the second hand, vintage or original. Otherwise it isn’t a home. It has always been hard for us to draw a clear line between a home and interior design. Therefore it was obvious from the beginning that our own offices, our home ground, more should resemble interior design shops – a showroom for all things we can fit in the home of our dreams.
