Downtown Apartment

Project assignment was to merge two identical apartments, of typical downtown Zagreb floor plan. Space intervention revives the flexibility of former plan solutions – three to four rooms facing the street facade. Double door set in the middle of the wall between the rooms become the key element in spatial organization of downtown housing. In the past, the rooms used to be salons for diverse daily activities, while today an open space plan allows a various number of activities to happen simultaneously. In new spatial conception, the door remains, not only as a hommage to historical heritage, but as a functional and partition element separating and connecting different functional zones. The apartment is divided into three zones: service (laundry, pantry, office, bathroom), representative (kitchen with dining, living room and and a study room), and private (bedroom, dressing room and bathroom). Equal attention was given to designing each of the zones. Representative area, rich in space and light, is detached from the other two by wooden barrier, which hides the passage to private area. Inside, built-in set of wardrobes lead to bedroom and to the luxurious bathroom. The interior is dominated by bright whiteness of the elements in order to allow natural light to penetrate deep into the space. The central part of the bathroom is centrally positioned ritual bath. Kitchen, dining and living area form open space, while a glass wall is places around the door to give serenity to study room, focused on large-scale aquarium. All rooms are scaled to fit Zagreb downtown home lifestyle: a lavish and representative entrance hall, very comfortable master bedroom and discreetly incorporated laundry room, dressing room and pantry.
