The building modifications consist in the removal of vertical non-load-bearing structures and the design of a completely new layout. The diagonal floor plan changed the apartment from 4 + 1 to 4 + kk with rooms with separate entrances, while their location and orientation achieved greater functionality of the space. The apartment in a residential building in the spirit of socialist realism is designed from a combined load-bearing system, namely from reinforced concrete pillars, girders and brickwork. The reconstruction therefore focused on exposing the original load-bearing structure and coloring it with various shades. Another task was the maximum use of all spaces with respect to the requirements of the investor. The central motif, which is repeated throughout the apartment, is a system of wooden shelves and cabinets, the function of which varies depending on the type of room. The floors are wooden, the laying corresponds to the new layout.
