04 of October '23

"10 Questions to an Interior Designer" is a series of short talks inspired by the series "10 Questions to...". This time our attention is turned to interior architects. In today's episode, Agata Piltz talks about her approach to design.

Agata Piltz - graduate of the Gdańsk University of Technology at the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning. She gained her professional practice in two studios JM Architekci and  Małgorzata Kruszko-Szotyńska and Szczepan Szotyński's design studio - creators of the crooked house in Sopot. Under the supervision of Mr. and Mrs. Szotyński, she co-designed the redevelopment of the pier and SKŻ in Sopot, the gate of the Fahrenheit Hotel in Gdańsk. As well as the interiors, stained glass and details of the Hotel Admirał in Gdańsk. She earned her unlimited design license in 2006. For 15 years, she has been running a company related to interior design, Studio Aranżacji Wnętrz Tryton, where she has designed commercial as well as private interiors and supervised investments.

1. For me, home is...

An oasis of peace. A place where I can relax and quiet my mind. A space for family, guests and friends. A comfortable place full of natural materials and heirlooms.

2. The key to a successful interior design is...

Listening to the needs of the client, and therefore designing according to the ergonomics of use. The project is supposed to be for the client and not the designer. They will live and function in the interior, not the designer/ architect.

3. I look for inspiration in...

Everywhere. In nature, on trips, at trade fairs and in foreign magazines.

4. In cooperation with a clientr the most important thing is...

Trust, understanding and willingness to pursue a common goal.

5. My favorite design style is...

There is no such style. Any good designer/architect should be able to work in any style. Of course, better or worse.

6. The most valuable object in my home is...

An old 150-year-old table, with a long history and a woodworm.

7. The most common mistake in self-decorating interiors is...

Too many things, colors and let's call it gadgets. The interior / house / premises / apartment should be cohesive, tell one story about the owner and household members.

8 My favorite material is...

Wood, stone.

9. Trend that I would like to see pass away already is...

Pseudo-Scandinavian with white kitchens and the use of a bottle-green sofa or a mustard-colored chair from a chain store.

10. Someday, I would like to live in...

An apartment in the city center, with a large roof garden. It doesn't have to be big, but close to friends and well connected so that I don't have to stand in traffic jams.
