A long and wide passage with lofty dining room at its end. The underling idea of the architects was to convert the passage into a pathway to paradise, that is, create a strong contrast between darkish elegance of the entire hall and exploding at its end warmth and brightness of dining area. Heavy oak table silhouetted against an old, richly ornamented door creates an ambience of secret passage to the unknown. The darkish elegance of hall was reinforced by unusual floor design - The flooring pattern has been a successful experiment brining to life long forgotten village garden path style where pieces of wooden logs are tightly placed not in horizontal but in vertical position exposing heavy network of contrastive tree rings – we made it and the effect is staggering! The ‘living’ mosaic comes to its end at the end of the hall where it smoothly changes into bright floor made of natural stone slabs.
Is our most cherished design. Its style is austere but elegant. The main highlight of this place is a dark brown exotic wooden wall and emerging from its center, made-to-order, stunning work of art - large 3D “picture” made of pieces of patinaed copper presented in a classy wooden frame. Variety of copper surfaces within the picture were twisted at seemingly accidental angles so that they reflect and cast subdued light at different directions creating truly warm atmosphere all over the place. The wall across the room is almost empty – the little something it has is a set of old, wooden trunks converted into low wall cupboard. Classy set of dark brown leather furniture, ceramic decorations and exotic flooring complement the picture of Austere Elegance living room. Guests with sophisticated taste will love this place.
Experience ambiance of pure tranquility in our Zen Rock Garden Bedroom. Inspired by the world-famous Zen rock garden at Ryoan-ji in Kyoto Japan, we fell in love with the idea of combining Colonial Style with Japanese Zen gardens meticulously created of sand grains reflecting natural mountains and rivers. Embedded in the floor, enormous lit-up aquarium displays soothing sand and stones landscape melting away your stress. The bed itself is a simple and beautiful design based on the idea of one curved line. Behind the bed, we have created a beautiful hideout we call ‘window in the window’ effect. Large wooden frame encapsulates window frame creating a bench divided by a little coffee table. Underneath, a set of old chests creates truly colonial feeling.
The bedroom welcomes you with gigantic, hand-made-to order ceramic wall design reflecting 3 dimensional, wall climbing tree branches. The decor is extremely sophisticated and romantic. The bedroom’s furniture is dark brown and thus very elegant. It has beautiful wardrobe, practical shelves and most of all a large double bed. Lit-up at the bottom, the bed creates the effect as if the bed was floating over the floor.
The bathroom has a toilet, a bidet and a large stand-up shower and thus has all it needs to be comfortable. Excellent design of dark brown and bright tiles with surface reminding of classy leather silhouetted against them bright elements such as hand made to order ceramic washing basin and lit up wooden sculptures. Feel like walking barefoot on exotic flooring? The in-floor heating system will make your stay in this beautiful bathroom warm and pleasant. Attached to the bathroom is a transparent door leading to the sauna. We are truly happy we have managed to bring in luxury that comes with a sauna, especially being aware that it is rather large houses outside costly cities that can afford such a luxury within extremely high square meter prices of Krakow apartments. Luckily, originally the old apartment featured a large pantry without a window – which simply demanded to be converted into the sauna for the enjoyment of our guests. It goes without saying that the Sauna has stereo to add up more flavour to your free time.
When arranging the functionality of the apartment, in case of as many as three bedrooms, we obviously predicted the need for more than one bathroom. The second bathroom has a large stand-up shower, a toilet and a washing basin. Although, this is a bit smaller bathroom and with lower design potential for architects, we made it very nice and comfortable
