Can you imagine having dinner by a popular lake, reeds rustling behind your back, surrounded by typically brindle Asian rocks and the sun setting overhead? Probably yes. Can you imagine it in the interior of a Žižkov apartment? We tried to fulfill this wish for the investor. We have created a completely unique table that represents the water surface. It is made of several layers of plywood, which has small ripples on it that evoke ripples on the lake. The whole table is carved into the shape of a popular lake and, thanks to its glass legs, it seems to levitate above the ground. We added chairs made of natural bast representing reeds to the table. Behind the back of the wall is a beautiful piece of Statuarieto marble stone, which brings stability to the space, unpretentious luxury and expresses the rock by the lake. Finally, the First Republic brass chandelier evoking the sun shines above its head. Instead of the usual crystal, miniature glass beads are hung on it, representing the setting sun over the horizon. This composition is the main idea of ​​the whole apartment.


From a practical point of view, the apartment is very easy to maintain, most things are hidden in built-ins and hidden cloakrooms. The apartment is original to the last detail, the vast majority of equipment is designed to measure, including handles, legs, fittings. All handles, furniture legs, kitchen cabinet for the hood, hidden niche behind the marble wall cladding, hinges, handles for a custom-made shower enclosure and much more, is made to order from brass according to an individual design. Brass was chosen cut because it gives a modern impression, yet it refers materially to times long past. Another pearl of the whole realization is the floor. Terazzo tiles imported from Italy with a thickness of 3 cm in a large format. The colors of the stones in the floor are repeated in color throughout the interior. As it is a real terrazzo, the thickness of the paving allows future generations to awaken its beauty by simply sanding. The same paving was used instead of classic window sills. The door was chosen frameless to leave the hallway undisturbed atmosphere of the rising sun. Behind the mirror are cleverly hidden all the electrical background of the apartment, just flip it open. As the last point, the apartment was complemented by a speaker system from a Czech manufacturer, which will gracefully complement not only the sound component, but also the material and color composition of the apartment.
