Maisonette flat in Brno

Mooza Architecture as Architects

The initial state of the flat was made up of two dwelling units forming a maisonette where the orientation of the connecting staircase did not allow a full use of the upper storey. It included two rooms, one of them being a walk-through room and a little bathroom in bad need of renovation.


The overall layout profited from a 180 degree turn of the staircase which enabled us to create a corridor thus allowing the use of the two upper rooms as separate bedrooms.


We tried to make the best use of the vacant, additional space wherever it was possible, e.g. around the staircase. The atypical alcove under the stairs is furnished with a made-to-measure sofa. The stair banister above the sofa is formed by a grid resembling an almost molecular structure which reflects the scientific profession of the flat owner.


The space above the staircase slope on the first floor is again fully utilized. There is a made-to-measure bed with a pull-out storage container. Shelves double as bedside tables.


The bathroom has been moved into the corner and it offers a roomy shower, a wash-basin and a toilet. A strip of glass blocks under the celing lets in natural light. The new round mosaic tiles in the bathroom form a white-blue pattern. Again, a hint towards the molecular theme mentioned above.
