The clients contacted us while still living in Barcelona. They were planning to move to Prague and renovate an old apartment with a loggia - the traditional layout of tens of thousands of other families living in prefabricated tower blocks with special emphasis on the home office. That is why we put a bit of contemporary poetry into the classic apartment in prefabricated tower block. With a soft irony, the steel details finished in industrial blue refer to the idea of a machine for living hidden behind a contemporary standardised building design. The apartment is complemented by practical details for everyday pleasure such as a heated mirror in the bathroom which does not steam up, a small hinged dressing table with a mirror, a lid on the teak worktop in the bathroom hiding dirty washing, a desk for stand-up programming and a litter 'hole' in the office or a frost-proof tap in the loggia.
