Maisonette in Prague’s Letná, a six-month highway journey with kids round america, and a ardour for the Czech graffiti scene and artwork basically. From the straightforward project of minor structure changes for simpler functioning of the household, wherein the kids will begin going to highschool one after the other after the “final” holidays, the general facelift of the house crystallized in the course of the design and preparation.
The primary reconstruction befell along with the acquisition of a part of the high-rise house constructing from the late Nineteen Thirties a number of years in the past in cooperation with traders and Majaq architects. From this time comes the answer on the precept of open structure of the decrease a part of the house across the central chimney wall. The flooring have been linked by a straight metal staircase with a partial glass railing. The higher bed room was linked by a roof built-in neck, from which it’s attainable to enter the terrace dealing with west to the courtyard.
Distinctive personalities and temperaments of our long-term associates mirror not solely the colour work and installations that steadily stuffed their residing area, but additionally the chosen idea of inside changes and shifts. We entered the range and relative habitability with new supplies and different colours hidden within the carpentry components of wardrobes and built-in wardrobes. The colour of the inside thus always modifications with its every day use. The unique concrete screeds on the partitions and oak parquet flooring have been preserved, which have been renovated with firming into their pure shade. The kitchen has been upgraded, there isn’t a must do away with issues that work unnecessarily. The brand new geometry of the stair railing, however, defended the brand new glass. All different areas and components have been maximally simplified, illuminated and harmonized in order that the elevated area of open structure nonetheless stands out and on the similar time the colours of the work and the added furnishings dominated in opposition to the background of fresh partitions with a minimal of particulars.

The unique separate loggia to the courtyard was glazed on the degree of the façade, creating an illuminated area of interest extending the hall with padded seating and on the similar time one other exhibition space. Level. The colour accents are closed by a light-weight and darkish grey cement trowel within the lavatory with a small-format anthracite mosaic bathe.
The rule of working with empathy for particular folks, their lives and desires has been confirmed. To step outdoors our snug minimalist design zone, the traders themselves impressed us with their distinctive style and the investor’s non-conforming wardrobe. The entire course of was not straightforward because of distant communication, however we positively thanks for the chance.
