This contemporary and multifunctional “space for art”, situated in central Bratislava, had been refurbished and turn from four roomed apartment into an open loft – like space with different functions from the . The space is vast and clear with minimalistic furnishing but with intriguing materials, textures and construct elements. The owner’s desire for loft that accommodates many functions – a living quarter, an art exhibiting premise; a studio occupied my several craftsmen and artist – required different space arrangement and dynamic of functions. So the architects cleverly divided the premise on day and night zones with stretched through space wall, built as a simple timber frame covered with white perforated metal that serves as door, closet and visual separation of spaces.
The architects play with collision of materials – striped concrete ceiling alternates with preserved and re-polished oak parquet at the one half of the premise, and with rubber ( red – non the less) flooring at the other. The combination of white perforated metal storage space on a timber construction gives transparency and air to the ambiance, the soft cross-shaped sofa gives the visual center of the spacious living room. But one of the most attractive and artistic details is the round dining table – created from kilometers of concentric mahogany veneer circles glued to each other shaping a massive ring. This central focal point of the kitchen was designed in collaboration with sculptors Richard Seneši and Jakub Trajter, and – as the whole space – is intriguing, artistic and innovative.
