noo.ma spaces architects Marcelina Gronowska and Damian Goliński faced a difficult task – complete renovation of an apartment in a historic tenement located by the Kopernika street near to the old square market. It has become an unconventional challenge to create three separate flats meant for short-term rentals.
Every fully functional apartment offers you a well-equipped kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and a living room. Architects have decided to go for some bold and unconventional solutions, which couldn’t be applied in a long-term living space. All dark green bedroom? Glassed shower in the centre of the flat or a pass to the bathroom hidden under the kitchen wall? Why not? This is something we can only expect from a space where we’re staying for a day or two – it should be beautiful, functional but also surprising with original ideas and solutions.
The apartment needed to be completely reorganised. The idea required a separation of the whole space into three independent flats. The entrance to the hallway that connects them all is emphasised by a restored, fitted with glass, semicircular door. Architects have decided to set up 27 light bulbs throughout the entire hallway to give it a bit of theatrical and classical feeling. Dark navy walls and a wooden bench from the noo.ma collection give a sense of boutique character from the first moment someone enters the room.
We loved the three options they created, but absolutely our favorite is apartment two.
