The 55-square-meter apartment, located in a 1950s building in Poznań, was created by combining two units. Architects from Atelier Starzak Strebicki studio are responsible for arranging the minimalist and cohesive interior.

Combining two smaller apartments in this case had its pros and cons - on the one hand, the new space is quite shallow and long, but on the other hand, thanks to six windows - evenly lit.The architects, arranging in the interior a bedroom, bathroom, hallway, kitchen and living room, decided to introduce a multifunctional structure - "wall-furniture", which separates the various zones in the apartment.

Maintained in bright shades of blue and green, the module not only demarcates the functions of the interior, but also serves as storage (it houses closets and shelves) and acts as a door to further rooms - sliding ones separate the bedroom from the hallway, and open ones, high to the very ceiling, are installed in the bathroom.Creating a coherent space, the "wall-furniture" maintained in pastel colors stands out against the background of white walls, wooden floor and light furniture - sofa and bed.

The existing pine plank flooring in the apartments was preserved, replenished and, after sanding, oiled. In turn, in the kitchen and bathroom, where the original wood was no longer present, the floor was made of granite tiles.
