At the beginning the investor’s expectations were moderate – he asked us to help him arrange room interiors as well as exchange kitchen cabinet doors. He could not have imagined how his guidelines would be revolutionized. Having been presented with some ideas for comprehensive development of the flat’s space and possibilities that could emerge from the new functional layout, the investor was bought into extending the scope of renovation.
Our co-operation led to a decision to demolish a load-bearing wall that separated the living room from the kitchen. Instead a downstand beam was mounted and thanks to that operation a large and bright living area emerged. It was decided not to cover the beam but paint it the same colour as the walls. Another important decision was to design a wall-mounted copper lightning system that would be located perpendicularly in the entire living area. The downstand beam and the copper lighting system became an exposed part of the interior and form a consistent arrangement.
During our first meeting the investor emphasized that he likes bright rooms, doesn’t cook, reads a lot and has many books.
