The apartment in a development project in a beautiful location with a view of a residential area full of greenery was designed as a three bedroom apartment at the time of purchase.
However, the solution with three separate, small bedrooms was not suitable for the clients. On the contrary, they opted for a representative, generous space with a comprehensive connection of the relaxation, dining and kitchen zones.
In the shell & core state, we modified the apartment to a two bedroom layout solution, removed parts of the partitions that unnecessarily divided the space, and emphasized the vistas and the natural approach of daylight.
The aim of the new solution was to support the unique atmosphere of the apartment formed by views and light, which changes over the day. This had a major impact on the atmosphere of the newly interconnected space.

The decision was in favor of an elegant, warmer color palette that beautifully corresponds to the owner's collection of paintings and glass objects. The intensity of color tones in the apartment changes during the day as the sun flows through the space.

The floor is made of large-format Marazzi tiles, the bathrooms have contrasting tiles with a metal effect Cast Iron by Apavisa. A dominant interior material is a walnut veneer chosen for significant pieces of furniture and doors. The built-in as well as the kitchen are in light tones lacquer.
