This spacious two hundred and fifty meter apartment is located right next to Błonia Common – the green heart of Krakow, was achieved by merging two apartments into a more open and spacious living area. This posed a challenge when it came to creating a truly functional system. The goal was to create a fresh and youthful atmosphere and free-up the space, but this was hindered somewhat by the original layout of the building structure.
The ambience and layout of the living room is centred around the guest, who can enjoy the comfort of the sofa specially designed by Elisa Ossino for DePadova. The style of the bookcase pays homage to the French polished wall units called “meblościanka” that were a staple of every Polish home in the 1960s.
The art on display in the living room was also selected by architects. They include examples of classic Polish post-war art, avant-garde ceramic pieces by Leszek Dutka, a gypsum ‘Couple’ by Józef Marek and paintings by Andrzej Meissner and Zbigniew Grzybowski.
