Renovation of an apartment for a private client
Arthur Nuss, Tomáš Beránek and Ivo Oosterbaan
The plan of the residence consists out of a living area and a sleeping area. Both parts are separated from each other by functionally placed elements between the bedroom and the living area. These elements contain the bathroom, the wardrobe and the technical room. The identity of these elements is strengthened by the use of floor-high doors.
In the middle of the space across from the bathroom, an open kitchen is placed, which also serves as a passage to the garden behind.
Each element has its own identity because it is materialized in its own way. The chosen materials are mostly natural materials, such as wood, concrete and natural stone. The detailing is minimalistic. The open design creates a beautiful and light apartment with its own contemporary look.
