A modern and comfortable house with an area of 151 sq m in Katowice. The ground floor was arranged in the open plan as a living area. The centrally located staircase with a glass balustrade is a real decoration of the interior, at the same time dividing the space into a sitting area that flows smoothly into the dining room on one side and a spacious kitchen on the other. In this way, the kitchen, although open, remains in some way hidden from the eyes of people staying in the living room. In the living room attention draws the wall behind a comfortable sofa, entirely finished with stone slabs, whose color perfectly matches the wooden floor laid in a classic herringbone. Although the large-glazed windows illuminate the living and dining room with daylight during the day, the architects also took care of the proper interior lighting after dark. In addition to LED lanes routed in the ceiling, they also reached for designer hanging lamps. Mirrored balls above the dining room table are remarkable interior decorations and eye-catching. The cozy atmosphere of the interior creates a composition of subdued colors, exposed on the background of white walls. The palette of gray and beige occasionally breaks stronger accents, such as mustard chairs in the dining room, black fireplace or natural greenery, beautifully exposed in a massive marble cover by the stairs. The first floor of the house is a private part, in which the hosts' bedrooms and bathrooms are located.
