An attic combining Scandinavian and Japanese styling

15 of December '22

This project is the work of the team of Karolina Burzyńska, owner of Projektive Architekci studio. Space, light, natural materials and good design build an idyllic atmosphere here, conducive to contemplation and relaxation.

Challenging space

The apartment is located in the attic of one of Kołobrzeg's charming townhouses. It overlooks the Old Town, historic buildings, the beautiful cathedral and charming narrow streets. The view is enhanced by intimate cafes, where you can linger and enjoy the unique character of the place in peace.

The attic before the renovation, on the one hand, delighted with light, spaciousness and views from the windows. On the other, it consisted of small, non-functional rooms connected by a long corridor. The architects, Karolina Wilgucka-Burzynska, Kaja Juszczynska and Izabela Maciejewska-Gałaś, faced the daunting task of improving the functional layout. The designers also wanted to enclose light and space in a single, aesthetically pleasing frame, while keeping the arrangement in line with the investors' ideas. The project encompassed all stages: from the initial conversation, through the concept and work with visualizations, to the technical design of all designed elements (furniture, buildings and technical solutions), along with author supervision.

In the japanese style

The applied design delighted the owners with its characteristic japandi style form and functionality. The bright, illuminated space was decorated with the most necessary furniture, without an excess of decorative details and flashy colors. The color palette chosen is a wide range of shades of white, beige and gray, warmed by natural light wood. The interior impresses from the entrance with its calm and refined character. Simple forms and noble materials, such as wood and stone, give the apartment a unique atmosphere. Color has been used here shyly and restrainedly, and the materials used are of high quality. In all rooms there is a mood of relaxation and leisure.

Living room

In the living room stood a comfortable gray modular sofa and a coffee table in neutral colors. The only color accent is an original woven carpet with a slightly muted yellow-pink pattern. The rounded shapes of the lamps soften the soaring room under the steep roof, and the natural wooden floor adds to the coziness. The entire living room is surrounded by a low built-in under the window, which serves as a shelf for decorations, paintings and flowers or a place to sit.

Scandinavian inspiration

The living room connects directly to the kitchen, which is positioned around the chimney. The tall built-ins here emphasize the shape and scale of the rooms. The second part of the apartmentis the bathroom and bedroom designed comfortably in the spirit of Scandinavian hygge. The bathroom was finished with tiles in gray and white colors. Wooden furniture fittings gently warm up this eye-pleasing interior. The bedroom decor allows you to calm down and find inner harmony. Graphic closet fronts provide a beautiful backdrop to the headboard, behind which there are also shelves. On the other side of the bed, there is space for a library and a place to work. The rooms are connected by a corridor, which is a part of the living room and kitchen. It's no longer just a communication zone, but a place to read by the window, a picture gallery and cleverly hidden closets in the built-ins. The intimacy and mystery of the apartment is added by unusual paintings by Katarzyna Gauer, which perfectly emphasize the harmony and gentleness of the designed space.
