Geometry Apartment is located at the border of old, historical city center of Krakow, Poland. Apartment is situated at the first floor of modern tenement house.
The apartment has a very clear, geometric division into individual zones. The suspended ceiling above the kitchen area clearly separates it from the living room space and at the same time creates a white, kitchen module inserted into this space. The kitchen – completely white – is complemented by golden accents of a golden tap and sink. To enhance the impression of minimalism in the kitchen, no handles were used – the drawers were equipped with an electric opening system. Thanks to this, we have one, large surface with only visible divisions of the kitchen fronts.
Originally, apartment consisted of 3 rooms, a corridor and bathroom. The 2.70 m high apartment with large windows seemed much bigger and more overwhelming due to the number of rooms and functional division. The owners wanted the space to be as open as possible. They decided to buy the property when the building was constructed. Seeing the reinforced concrete ceilings, they decided to leave them without covering by plaster. They were made so well that even the randomness of the formwork tops was not an obstacle for them to achieve the impression of coziness and orderly space. In the final version of the project, all the walls have been demolished and rebuilt. The kitchen appeared in the place of the hall. There are hidden wardrobes for outerwear. The zones of the apartment – the living room and the kitchen – although they are included in one space, they have been clearly defined and the cards are harmoniously combined with a geometric play of shapes. The kitchen line is lined with Italian panels made with a carrara marble pattern. Lifelong materials right down to bathroom, where it meets the stone model of large-format ceramic slabs. Its color is matching the exposed reinforced concrete ceiling. And so we have continuity in the workshops, i.e. meeting in all areas - a geometric division that gives the apartment its order.
