[en] From the first design sketches we tried to get distance from the interventions that have become „standard procedures” in the local scene of designing within old buildings. The owner, a jazz passionate, wished for an elegant and flexible apartment of high standard, with vast multifunctional areas within the living space. The design we settled upon was an intervention where the white color is dominant and plays the role of a clean background on which the main theme of the apartment is evolving – the furniture, which is treated as a unitary contemporary insertion.

[ro] Înca din primele intentii am încercat sa ne îndepartam de interventiile devenite “standard” în imobile vechi. Beneficiarul, pasionat de muzica jazz, a dorit un apartament elegant si de standard înalt, flexibil, cu spatii ample multifunctionale în zona de zi. Ca raspuns am ales o solutie în care albul predomina si joaca rolul unui fundal epurat pe care se dezvolta tema principala a apartamentului – mobilierul, care este tratat ca o insertie contemporana unitara.
