APARTMENT WITH OVAL CORE - reconstruction of an apartment for a young family in Prague.
The task for the reconstruction of a 4 + 1 apartment in its original condition in an old building from the 1960s was simple for clients - to create a place for their growing family with enough common space while maintaining the number of rooms and the spirit of the original building. They wanted to use light colors, wood and incorporate family furniture from the original equipment, including the dominant feature of a large spacious table for meeting friends.

The layout of the apartment was cleaned of the inner core - we created one large space, in the middle of which we inserted the oval module and placed a bathroom and a toilet with a washing machine. We divided the remaining area of ​​the central space through a glass door so as to maintain a feeling of openness and the possibility of connecting and separating all spaces. The goal was also to get daylight throughout the apartment and mostly into the corridors, which were originally unfriendly dark.
We let the surfaces stand out in the new interior. The floors are a combination of refurbished and new oak moldings and terrazzo. The furniture has surfaces in birch plywood, solid beech and comfortable textiles. The wall surfaces then alternate with roller painting and smooth dynamic oval surfaces of the apartment core. We applied pastel paint to the static parts of the technical equipment of the apartment.
The dominant feature of the space is the oval core.
