The apartment situated in a popular part of Prague's Letná was in unsatisfactory condition at the time of purchase. In the past, its layout was modified several times and some of the original elements were irretrievably damaged.
However, the advantage of the apartment was its division into a larger representative part towards the street with an open view of Stromovka Park and the second, private part consisting of two smaller rooms facing a quiet courtyard. This logical division was supported in the design phase by partial dispositional changes. By removing part of the non-load-bearing wall, we connected two rooms and created a linear arrangement of the dining and kitchen zones. In the opposite part of the apartment, the owners' request for sufficient storage space and the need for above-standard facilities were taken into account.

The dominant feature of the main space is the Artemide Empirico light, which floats through the room and supports its new linear geometry. The color scheme of the interior is in light colors with a predominance of white, complemented by oak veneer, which corresponds to the solid wood floor. The interior is complemented by a canvas by Jaroslav Valečka and a smaller oil painting from the beginning of the last century, which, despite its small size, has a dominant position reflecting its importance for the owner.

In the daughter's bedroom and room, patterned wallpaper in pastel and gray tones became a distinctive element of the interior. All rooms are complemented by Vitra furniture and Artemide lamps.

A new oak solid floor as well as the new plasterboard ceiling have been added, in which new electro installations are hidden. The door is in a white, lacquered design without a half-groove. The bathroom, toilet and the storage room are a combination of a large-format Marazzi tiles and STO water-resistant paint.
