"We can be heroes, just for one day"


(David Bowie)


 


I always adored Batman. No superpowers, just an unbelievable persistence. I always considered him as a role model, a hero, when it came to such impossible adventures like this apartment.


 


You see, I love desperately run-down apartments, love to pick out beautiful features and all the right angles, basically to prove, that home is not a place but a state of mind, and a person. Impersonating these spaces and assembling them  into a complex personality is more psychology than design. Functions, materials, situations, the mixture of old and new things have to be built up into a momentum, into little heroic acts, like watching sunrise from our park-view bed or the stars at night.


 


The first impulse on arrival to the lobby is that its like purgatory. Bright, shiny. It connects us with the outside world as it connects the service rooms and the guest room with the common living space what contains the kitchen, the dining room and the living room. We can access the master bedroom from this common space, which functions as a standalone suite with its own bathroom and shower, not to mention the unmatchable panorama. No unnecessary spaces, no unused corners. No walls to keep us from each other, only spaces to connect us together, one home, one family.
