Do not embellish! Appreciate the generosity of material! Magdalena and Maria, conservators of monuments such rules comply not only at work. Simple and authentic is their home. Here’s goes nothing.
All according to your wishes: Magdalena wanted to see the forest from the kitchen. I see. Maria wanted to have a comfortable studio. I have. And their children: 7-year-old Marta and 12-year-old Philip have their own rooms upstairs. Spacious, comfortable and high.
This effect, without any surprises, it is thanks to the two sides of one project: the architect, because he could very well hit the investors’ expectations, and investors themselves, because I knew what they wanted and who are looking for. They were looking for an architect with talent and sensitivity. For them, conservators, it was important not only to material, size, form, but also the philosophy of the designer. Do not block, but rather to reveal. Do not embellish, but rather to restore to life.
And they found an architect with conservation approach to the profession. – Przemek does not change anything, but it behaves – says Magdalena, assessing previous projects – adaptations of lofts – Medusagroup studio boss, Przemek Lukasik. The work stands Medusagroup respect for the existing architecture. Although the house and Mariusz Magdalene is not adaptation, but it was built with the same sense of the needs of investors. And as the loft has the characteristics of the interior poindustrialnych. The space is open and organized. Her trademark is a long perspective.
Simple communication routes run along the two main sides of the house, balanced on the left and right side of the living room. Bright, illuminated symmetrically from two sides a row of tall windows, balconies. Here, life moves in a clockwise direction of the sun. Open bottom helps family life: feasting, conversations, amusements, leisure, watching TV. And now, in the summer, when the living is not enough, a terrace, a wooden platform on a warm, spacious, with dining table.
Kitchen (black) and fire (easy, with rolled steel, looks great surrounded by concrete) are also project architect. The rest of the interior is the work of the owners. Inside the designer left them free rein – which in turn evidence of trust in the other direction. And they, as befits a professional, came to the matter professionally. Everything was thought out in advance. – End of assembly was also the end of the finishing work – says Mariusz, accurately describing the design assumptions. What does this mean? Simply saying that there is no house decoration. For example, there are no plaster. Maybe a little bit for abreaction, and a bit of defiance in the house of art conservators, who every day bring back glory of matter, ground floor walls are made of precast concrete (we appreciate and such invoice!). And the aesthetics of the area entered a pipe risers and electrical wires, which uncovered nothing significant characteristic of the wall drawing.
