Flat in Krakow’s Kazimierz district. We fell in love with the ceiling!

The flat in Kraków’s Kazimierz district was created in a historic, classicist tenement house, which was built in 1870. In addition to its beautiful architecture and partially preserved interior layout, the tenement also boasts a great location, as its windows overlook both the city and the Vistula River. Today we present to you – in our opinion – a beautiful flat, whose owner knew exactly what he wanted. And he wanted an original interior, a place that would be perfect for its imperfections. A place where you can see the course and influence of time. In our opinion, with the support of arch. Grzegorz Pnioek, this has been done perfectly. We congratulate the architect, we envy the owner.

The flat is located in Kraków’s Kazimierz district. It is a historic district, which before World War II was a typical Jewish quarter. Many Jews lived and ran their businesses here. Today, there are many synagogues, Jewish restaurants and sites commemorating the pre-World War II era.

The flat in Krakow’s Kazimierz is located in a 19th century tenement house in Krakow’s Kazimierz. It consists of four spacious rooms. From the hallway there is an entrance to a bathroom with a shower, toilet, washbasin and a utility wardrobe. Then we move to the living room connected to the kitchen where there is a sofa with armchairs, a table with four chairs and kitchen furniture necessary for cooking. From the living room we enter through double doors into the bedroom with a large bed and a wardrobe.An element that undoubtedly gives the interior an amazing character are the polychromes decorating the ceiling of the living room.

The owner is a great fan of Krakow and the Jewish Quarter in particular. This is where he grew up and spent the best moments of his childhood and early adulthood. He prefers to live in imperfect places – affected by time – rather than in perfectly new and reconstructed buildings/apartments. The townhouse was built in 1870 in the classicist style. The façade, the main staircase and the layout of the rooms have survived. Unfortunately, most of the interiors have been modified. The technical condition of the building was also a problem, as the architect adds that the biggest problem was a soggy wall in the bedroom, which necessitated additional work.
