boq architekti completes overhaul of small apartment for young man in Prague
The client, a young man who has a very irregular work program and travels a lot, approached boq architekti to redesign his apartment in newly built residential project in Prague.
“The apartment was in its original layout divided into two separate walk-through rooms. Since the flat was newly reconstructed by the developer into this form, we have decided that it makes no sense to venture into any major dispositional changes consisting in breaking down the partition wall. So we worked on the basis of the existing layout. Despite the relatively small dimensions, we designed a kitchen islet as a centerpiece of the whole space. It offers space for cooking, dining, meeting friends. The seating is solved by raised bar chairs. When cooking, the client is facing the room, looks out the window and does not have to turn his guests back. In the second room, there is a living room with a bedroom. Since the client has a very irregular regime, which does not take care at day/night time, we decided to divide this room with sliding panels and to separate the sleeping area if necessary from the living area to ensure rest and relaxation during the day without having a major impact on his partner’s regime. This partition wall is glazed in one piece so that if the client wishes, the morning sun can get into the bedroom. Otherwise, the windows are equipped with dark-colored blinds of dark color. There is a wardrobe in the bedroom and there is a storage space for the bedding behind the bed. The workstation is designed by the window, it is a simple table set with a low drawer that “is laid” on the cabinet. The living room is featured by a simple gray sofa and a coffee table. At the level of the partition wall, the projection screen with back-projection is considered to ensure the possibility of watching movies from both the living room and the bedroom,” explained boq architekti
