It was a complete reconstruction of a small flat in an old block of flats in Prague 7.

The original flat was cramped, dark and uneconomical, divided into small rooms – it was an entrance, as well as a hallway with a door to the bathroom, toilet, living room and kitchen.

The assignment was to create a completely modern flat simultaneously leave something from the atmosphere of the original flat – the atmosphere for which the investor chose the flat (mainly it was for the original wooden partitions with glazing and high ceilings, functionalist character, original parquets).

In the first phase, we connected the flat into one airy space by demolishing the main partition separating the entrance and the hallway from the rest of the flat, together with the partition separating the kitchen.

In the second phase, we divided the space according to functions again, but only in the interior – by furniture, storage spaces that do not extend to the ceiling thus the light reached the entrance, hallway and the kitchen.

The third phase was purely interior – furnishing the space in the combination of a large-format lacquered white surfaces from mdf boards and furniture made of solid oak wood.

With all these modifications, the area of the flat increased by approximately 2m2 and space was notably lightened and rejuvenated. All furniture is atyp which we also designed and addressed dealt within the project.
