A singular pied-à-terre

Posted on Fri, 23 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

The renovation of this 85 m² pied-à-terre in the 3rd arrondissement of Paris places the emphasis on natural materials and artisanal pieces. Although minimalist it is an intimate space that celebrates the unique and inspiring. Beaumarchais, an by Batiik Studio.

A simple beauty

Posted on Wed, 21 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“When we took on the commission to renovate this early 20th century house, located in a historical residential neighborhood of Madrid, we opted to maintain and preserve the classic spirit of the original house. We tried to provide sobriety and pause with the materials so that the pieces of art from the client’s personal collection would gain prominence. In addition, the facade was restored with the use of deep blue as the exterior-interior link, present in the carpentry of all the rooms of the house. On the first floor, with a more social character, unconnected spaces from previous renovations were combined and arranged, and the original staircase was maintained and restored.”

Modern minimalism, traditional charm, careful curation. A potent combination producing a simple beauty in the AXH House by Febrero Studio.

A kaleidoscope of joy

Posted on Wed, 21 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“Years spent living abroad in a number of different homes, in New York and Hong Kong, had our clients yearning for a joyful home that would feel uniquely theirs, where they could settle with their three children. Our canvas was a former worker’s cottage, which had been renovated into a much larger home by architect Sam Crawford several years before. Our clients wanted their home to reflect their experiences travelling and passion for art and entertaining, so we were engaged to inject colour and add layers to get the most out of each space. The result is a home which is truly bespoke.”

What a feast of colour and materials! From the Verde Guatemala marble and pinky purple vein of Calacatta Viola marble to the Morrocan tiles and the burl veneer to the jewel like jugs and pops of pattern in the bedrooms it’s a kaleidoscope of joy.

A modern Warsaw loft

Posted on Mon, 19 Jun 2023 by midcenturyjo

“The apartment is located in Warsaw, in the Wola neighbourhood. The new plan required a major renovation and redevelopment project. The interior has been equipped with furniture and accessories designed by Loft Kolasiński, such as a library, dining table, wardrobe, bench with storage function, desk, coffee table, bed, and bedside tables, as well as kitchen, bathroom and office furniture. We also designed elements of steel joinery. In the project in Wola, we used a new technology of covering the fronts of the kitchen, bathroom and wardrobe furniture with the same plaster that we also covered the walls with. To equip the apartment, we have also collected unique furniture and lamps from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, which have undergone carpentry and upholstery renovation. Particularly noteworthy is the restored desk from Prague made to order in a single copy in the 1950s. Another unique object can be found in the study on the mezzanine-a grey armchair by Ivan Matusik, designed in the 1970s for the Kyjev hotel in Bratislava. To decorate the walls, we used photographs by Erwin Olaf, the duo Billy & Hells, and a painting by Apolonia Sokół.”

I love it when Loft Kolasiński share their work with us and this modern Warsaw loft is no exception. Clean, contemporary lines with carefully considered details.
