The house from the 50s needed renovation both from the outside and inside. The family of four opted for a modern interpretation of the existing elements, with an emphasis on the design of maximum open spaces.
We designed the ground floor as a single, continuous, multi-purpose space, the heart of which is a centrally placed fireplace. With its design, it connects the kitchen, dining room and living room and creates the unity of family and home. We achieved a unified space by breaking through the walls and removing unnecessary doors and corridors. The introduction of a two-storey space with a gallery corridor is perfected by a minimalist single-frame staircase, which indicates the central stylistic and design note of the house.
The treatment of the walls is provided with rough concrete, which neutralizes the rooms and allows a feeling of clean lines and ascetic living.
Connecting the roof with ancillary buildings replaces the existing traditional atmosphere with a modern and uniquely designed living environment that follows the wishes and lifestyle of the family.
