Text description provided by the architects. The starting point in creating the interior was the investor’s collection of paintings, antique furniture and extensive library of books. The apartment was divided and furnished in order to expose these items, but in such a way that they do not compete and do not dominate the space. All the new furniture pieces are very minimalistic and free of any visible details. The books have been closed in double-sided bookcases, which also serve as separators of the communication area and they also contain a bio fireplace and a TV set. The kitchen was also designed in a minimalistic way and all the appliances have been hidden in closets.
The entire system of walls and furniture was designed in such a way that spectacular window view of nearby lake and park can be seen from every place in the apartment. For this purpose, we also decided to give up on traditional doors in favor of full-height sliding doors, hidden in the walls - so that we gained even more open space.
The openwork wooden ceiling was designed to direct attention towards the view outside the window, to improve the proportions of the rooms and to add warm atmosphere.
