The carefully selected materials and delicate touches throughout the apartment pay tribute to its historical significance and timeless elegance. During the renovation process, the team drew inspiration from the original aesthetic of the space, incorporating elements such as white lacquered doors, brass handles, and characteristic oak parquet flooring.

By stripping the floor plan down to its load-bearing walls, they were able to create a spacious hallway that serves as a central link within the apartment, rather than just a passageway. A striking green vestibule with a circular mirror welcomes visitors at the entrance, setting the tone for the apartment’s unique style. Moving beyond the vestibule, a thoughtfully designed library offers ample storage for books and personal items.

The decision to combine the original narrow street-facing rooms into a single expansive living area was a brilliant choice, achieved by creating a broad opening. The white kitchen seamlessly blends into the wall, while freestanding furniture complements the oak floors. A custom-made solid oak table becomes the focal point of the space, adding a touch of elegance. The living room opens up to a balcony facing the street, providing a lovely view and allowing natural light to flood the room. Adorned with a captivating painting, the living room becomes a true haven of relaxation and inspiration.

The bathroom exudes a spa-like atmosphere, with intricate tiling and rounded corners adding a touch of sophistication. The choice of round mosaic tiles pays homage to the apartment’s age and grandeur, while brass accessories, concrete slab niches, and subtle indirect lighting add a touch of luxury and refinement.
