The beneficiant house requested for a beneficiant strategy. The condominium is positioned within the Previous City of Prague and with its 250 sqm extends on a full flooring of a refurbished residential constructing from late 1920’s. The structure of the constructing suggests a stylistic shift from artwork deco to early functionalism, which grew to become the inspiration for our inside idea. It’s primarily based on timeless supplies, refined particulars and numerous bespoke and in-built furnishings. The goal in addition to the temporary was to supply unpretentious, virtually minimalistic modern dwelling, striving for simplicity whereas providing a range of environment and expertise. The primary welcome is simply the clear architectural house itself stuffed with daylight, whereas on the second look, the inside provides moments of shock and discovery – like an creation chocolate calendar, the place opening some doorways leads every time to a distinct style or temper… right here a brand new materiality could be revealed – like a darkish veneer wardrobe, a brass-clad bar or a complete purple powder room.
The format of the condominium is split into three zones in keeping with their use and intimacy. The primary dwelling space straight related with an entry hallway represents the “social” zone. It’s conceived as a light-weight open house with giant home windows alongside the road facade, offering a relaxed feeling with gentle edges and hues. On one facet it’s outlined by a furnishings wall with a hearth, bookshelf, a hidden TV and bar, behind which the house continues to an workplace. On the opposite facet it follows right into a kitchen nook separated by a glass partition with sliding doorways. A black kitchen counter creates a counterpart to the fireside cladding, whereas a picket counter makes a twin brother to the big bespoke eating desk.
The “personal” zone with bedrooms is positioned on the rear façade and has a extra intimate character. The third “threshold” zone lies in between these two and consists of corridors and bogs, every with a definite character. A darkish gray hall results in visitor and youngsters bedrooms and to a blue visitor lavatory, that can also be accessible by from the workplace. The color of the corridors continues into bedrooms, integrating doorways and in-built closets. In the main bedroom it has a lighter gray tone and wraps many of the bed room with a wall cladding and an adjoining walk-in closet. The grasp lavatory has a light-weight beige temper and enjoys daylight by a translucent glazing to the closet.
The undertaking performs with number of supplies and hues and their (generally daring) that create particular interrelationships and improve the variety of expertise. The stable wooden flooring of dyed oak runs by all dwelling areas as a unifying gentle texture. Its French sample is sustained within the stone flooring within the kitchen with custom-cut stone tiles. The inside options altogether six totally different sorts of stones (4 kinds of marble, black granite and purple travertine) and likewise a valuable root veneer and brass as particular accents.
The inside consists of many bespoke parts, like all in-built furnishings together with washbasins, window sills, the kitchen, the big eating desk and small side-tables manufactured from the stone leftovers. We additionally invited Studio Dechem to collaborate on the lighting of the dwelling space which resulted right into a bespoke set of lights they designed and produced – floor lights above the couch, suspended lights above the eating desk, a brass bar above the kitchen counter and wall fixtures within the hallway, plus just a little glass cupboard deal with because the icing on the cake.
