A & G Apartment by FormaFatal
The project of two little bathrooms and a kitchen of a maisonnette flat in Prague Vinohrady entrusted a young couple to the architect Dagmar Štepánová. In view of the fact that the owners of the flat had been living in London for a few years, their demands of solved interior’s part reflected this chapter of their life. The red thread of the plan, which connect all three rooms, are materials - in particular brass. This material shows up in every space in different details. Every single part has its own character and charm.
The kitchen refers to London’s feeling the most. The white bathroom floats on a minimalist wave. The greenish bathroom’s expression is very close to an industrial look. Here the architect used an untraditional material of shower divider – wire glass - and a common washbasin put on construction of welded profiles. The little bathroom with area 1,5x1,6m appears twice as big thanks to the mirror cladding behind the washbasin. The brass details are reflected in the vintage shower tap and washbasin’s siphon.
Moving on to the minimalist white bathroom - there is a brass washbasin on a solid wood locker and above it a round mirror embedded in a wooden shelf (made of an old plank). One door of the locker was hand painted by the artist Aleš Polácek. The form of the washbasin and the mirror reacts to the chosen shape of cladding. The kitchen corner is not big however every cm2 of it was used – corner cabinet with so called carousel inside or thin pocket behind the column used for drying dish towels. All visible parts of the kitchen were made of plywood. Its milled surface was oiled into black and greyish shades. The black compact working desk, thanks to its surface, mirrors the ceramic facing in a shade of patina brass. Other brass elements are the handgrips and the sink.
The pendant lights come from Normann Copenhagen's workshop. The whole kitchen was made by Dyzyk joiner's workshop according to the original Dagmar’s design.
