Project's description: The apartment is situated in the centre of Lviv in an old Austrian secession building constructed in 1906 on the site of a small palace built in the early 1800s. Many members of the city’s intelligentsia lived there throughout the twentieth century: city council members, professors of the university etc. Until 1939, this high-quality modern building was used by a Czechoslovak consulate. Today, it is home to a municipal library and a few apartments. The building itself aged pretty well.
The project by the Replus bureau was realised for a couple with 3 children in a vast space of 234 square meters comprising four bedrooms, a living room, a dining room, a kitchen and four bathrooms.
The main goal for the architects was to combine technological components with classical forms. For instance, a supply and exhaust air conditioning and ventilation systems were hidden above the ceiling without any visible supply grilles. Thus, the air comes in through specially designed channels inside of a drywall construction.
There were already two big skylights with natural light inside of the building: one in the hallway and another in the main bathroom of the apartment, which creates a unique ambience and was a significant factor in designing the space. A size contrast appears in the bathrooms by means of mosaics, solid glass surfaces and large format tiles.
A gas fireplace was installed in the living room to underline elegance and coziness of the space. So was the spruce flooring, adding a warm and charming character to the apartment. Thin lines all over the place and rounded corners in the doorways were employed to highlight the signature Replus bureau design.
