Serbian architectural practice Autori has recently refurbished this 80 smq apartment for a young couple in the heart of Belgrade. Baring in mind the wishes of the owners who have a modern view on the organization of living space, Autori have created a completely clear, open and bright space. Architects concentrated the activities into a dominant, central area, around which other contents continue to develop.
This space includes the living room, kitchen and dining room, followed by the study room which we separated with a glass partition. The sleeping area with the toilet and a bright bathroom is distinctly separated and overlooks the lush greenery in the inside of the block.
Treatment of floors and walls was reduced to the essential – polished concrete floor and the authentic “avramenko” ceiling that was hiding under the suspended ceiling.
Studio Autori has also designed a number of pieces for the interior – the kitchen block, shelves, lighting, benches, the bathroom block. They approached the selection of materials and colors very carefully and combined the custom made furniture with repaired pieces of vintage furniture and contemporary design like the FLOS and Vertigo Bird lighting.
