We like bright apartments where soft pastel colors dominate. We also like those in which an intense color dots the i. This is definitely the case of an apartment in Wrocław's Biskupin district. The architect used color on different surfaces - in one room it's the wall, in another the cabinets. See for yourself!
In this apartment managed to reconcile things that rarely go hand in hand. On the one hand, fashionable stylistic solutions that we know from the covers of interior design magazines, on the other - an individual feature. Thanks to this, the apartment in Wroclaw Biskupin, designed by Magdalena Kwoczka, founder of the studio Finchstudio, is in line with the latest trends in interior design, and at the same time - bold and energetic -reflects the character of the owners perfectly.
"Please do something extra" - when an architect hears such words from investors, there is no doubt that interesting cooperation and an exciting project await him.
The awareness that the clients are open-minded people who are not afraid of original solutions greatly drives to work - Magdalena Kwoczka admits that from the beginning she found a common language with a couple of owners of a two-level apartment in a green district of the city.
It quickly became clear that they shared a vision of the house as a place teeming with energy that keeps up with the rhythm of the residents' lives. Multifunctionality - this slogan often came up in conversations about the realization, to eventually become one of the main features of the apartment.

Behind the glass doors
The living area includes a living room with an open kitchen and a room that combines the function of a study, a place for guests and a game room. It was separated by a striking glass door with dark muntins, which, when opened, creates a large space - indispensable for home parties.
A strong point on the map of the living room is a spreading corner sofa in a saturated amaranth color, juxtaposed with only slightly less pronounced shades of navy blue and ochre. The bookcase, where boldly displayed books are placed on a black bookcase, is also full of character. In addition, there is a stylish floor lamp and an aged Persian-style rug - all this creates a homely atmosphere, without losing anything of its unforced elegance. The same is true of the kitchen, where the architect from Finchstudio skillfully combined the fronts of the lower cabinets made of oak veneer veneer, with a row of upper cabinets in bleached olive green.
Another argument in favor of the apartment's functionality is the built-ins surrounding the bathroom on the first floor - on the kitchen side, rows of cabinets blending into the background are juxtaposed with a refrigerator, and from the entrance, white cabinets with slanted handles are at the disposal of hosts and guests, giving them a shabby-chic look.

The ground-floor bathroom is small and rather minimalist, although there is no shortage of trendy solutions, such as vertically arranged narrow white tiles or a contrasting mosaic on the floor. But it is the upstairs bathroom that is an absolute masterpiece in the category of classics with a twist. It has everything that should be in a stylish bath room - marble slabs on the floor, on the lower part of the walls and around the bathtub, higher up slightly darker tiles arranged in a classic brick pattern and a commode-style cabinet for the sink. When juxtaposed with black ceiling stucco, a strip separating the tiles and a bit of loft lighting above the mirror, and adding a dot on the i, i.e. a rug in ethnic patterns, we get an interior that escapes all schemes.
The use of black motifs in the form of a strip of stucco, cabinetry, mirror frame and even switches was meant to refer to the dark elements of the living area, and ultimately defined the character of this bathroom , explains Magdalena Kwoczka.
