The flat is situated in the center of Ostrava, on the first floor of a building constructed in between 1920s and 1930s with a view over a quiet park . Its previous dispositions weren’t suitable for the owner. Based on the recommendation of an architect, he has opted for one spacious living room with a view over the park and a bedroom facing courtyard. The living room is divided into 4 functional zones. The first one, kitchen with dining room, was supplied with new table and chairs, former kitchen unit was kept, only placed in a different niche. Second zone is intended for relaxation and watching TV. Third zone, serves as a workspace and essentially influences the space thanks to an opportunity of closing sheer and opaque curtain. Black – opaque curtain allows maximal privacy for work and the sheer one delicately divides the space. This part separates the fourth zone that is used as a library.. Its shelves can be freely shuffled and moved depending on the placement of books and other items. New disposition of the flat required removing the transoms and subsequential floors leveling.
