The renovation involved a general replacement of the installation, chaffing of floors, demolition of walls, therefore, during the design process, we were limited only by load-bearing walls and the Investor’s requirements.

Another important factor was the large amount of furniture and souvenirs that the Owners wanted to keep from the previous house, which were to harmonize with new modern materials in a stylish and eclectic way.

The atmosphere of the house is kept in bright colors. The cozy and homely atmosphere was to serve for years because the Owners do not assume further removals. The ground floor of the house houses a spacious hall with a wardrobe, a kitchen with a pantry, a living room with a dining room, a bathroom and a guest room.

The first floor is the Owners’ private zone with a bedroom with a bathroom, two offices and a small gym. One of the favorite rooms of all household members is a kitchen with a cozy corner for relaxation. A brick wall with decorative painted plates, which are a family memento of the Owners, adds charm.
