The main goal was to create an open, bright and airy ‘loft’ and with a pleasant, spacious and modern public space including a wide range of storage possibilities. The wall between the lounge and the apartment’s closed balcony was removed to create a larger living space, and a built-in padded window seat that spans the entire width of the room was added.
Some of the apartment’s original features, such as a concrete post and a brick wall, were kept and restored to preserve its character. Meanwhile, others were replaced, such as the flooring, which was swapped for whitewashed oak-colored laminated parquet laid in a herringbone pattern.
A two-way carpentry wall is the central element in the apartment, made from a sheet of tempered glass – 113 CM high and 208 CM wide – the wall divides the kitchen and the bathroom space, while letting light from the bathroom window infiltrate into the cooking area.
White Formica kitchen cabinets amplify the light, and storage and appliances are hidden behind handleless push-to-open doors.
