The main problem in 1 floor was an oblong space. The idea of a long TV cabinet combined with a soft bench for a dining table came like solving this problem with no extra space for a dining area. Huge metal shelf with a wooden cubes gives a depth for this living space.

The kitchen area is in the other back of a building in a narrow space. The white rhombus tiles poured out up to a ceiling on a black contrasted wall. Bright oak cabinets coming like a cozy warming material in a kitchen area.

The main tv wall in a living room in colored with a grey ombre effect and the opposite shelf and fireplace wall is left with old white colored bricks. Upper ceiling part in a living room has a structured grey painted stucco remaining concrete while other walls and ceilings are painted white with black wooden surrounds that gives a contrast effect in colors and structures.

One wall is painted in white with a white geometric wall lamps while the other is painted in dark grey and coming to the second floor where the niche left in a building project was used for a book shelf with a leads.

The owners of this cottage works with a IT book sphere so they needed a big comfortable work area- cabinet. So that room was adapted to their needs with 2 working spaces, comfortable sofa and metal mesh wall- shelf detail coming into mesh closet around the corner.
