Polish architects Loft Szczecin have overhauled a Berlin holiday home to contain a wealth of original features from their homeland.
Residing in the suburbs of the German capital, the apartment had to undergo extensive restoration work; extricating the home’s problems with damp and neglect to transform it in to a multi-functional, modern holiday home.
To avoid the banality and predictability of traditional holiday homes, Loft Szcezcin looked towards vintage Mediterranean architecture to add a dash of mystique and elegance to the property. Which is displayed through the walls and ceilings that adopt fresh white exteriors alongside a selection of aged red brick dividing walls.
As homage to their homeland, and to stick by the traditions they know best, Loft Szczcein imported a vast majority of furnishings from Poland. For example, the Bauhaus inspired chairs were bought at auction and originate from a 1950’s Polish factory.
Complimenting the rustic Polish aesthetic is a selection of wooden furnishings that are integrated to echo the style and appearance of traditional Mediterranean villas.
Loft Szczecin add subtle touches of character to beautifully restore this exquisite holiday home to its former glory. Take a closer look around the entire property below.
