Look at the ceiling! Flat in a former malt house in Nysa

It has a great atmosphere. The flat was furnished in a former malt house in Nysa. Its unique element is the preserved old elements which, restored, perform a decorative function. The interior of the flat was designed by Agata and Maciej Ferenc from the FABRYK-ART studio.

The interior was designed for a plant lover. The architects noticed the investor’s artistic soul from the very first meeting. This influenced the final design of the flat. – In this project, we wanted to show the investor’s passion for beauty and greenery,’ explain the authors of the project.

The flat is 60 square metres. It is located in a residential complex that was built as a result of the conversion of a former malt house from the late 19th century. The architects knew how to make use of the old architecture. The arched ceiling and restored brick on cast-iron columns were a hit.

The flat consists of three rooms. At the entrance, in a small hallway, the architects hid the door to the bathroom, which is finished in the colour of the wall. The wardrobes for outerwear and shoes were also found here. Their fronts are also the colour of the wall. A washing machine and dryer have been placed in one of the walls. The spacious living area has a kitchenette with a large oval table and a seating area with a sofa and armchair. The wall behind the openwork wall unit with TV is decorated with a custom-made wallpaper with a painting depicting trees. The door to the bedroom is hidden in the wall, creating an “enchanted garden” effect. The bedroom is dominated by a navy blue and graphite bed, with a large upholstered headboard and velour wall decoration. Here, the designers have separated the wardrobe behind sliding doors with fluted glass.

The great asset of the space is the ceiling. Interestingly, the developer planned to cover the bricks with plaster as standard. The owner should check with the contractor beforehand to ensure that the vaults remain in their original form. This was also the case here. The vaulting was cleaned and in some places reconstructed. The removal of excess grout allowed a more three-dimensional effect to be achieved.

The designed interior is dominated by a dark colour scheme. In the living room, graphite black creates the aura, which forms the background for the light sofa and curtains. A strong colour accent is the green free-standing furniture with fridge and oven.

This is the only piece of furniture that we decided to stylise slightly by adding frames to the fronts and crowning the top with a decorative cornice. The green of this piece of furniture is alluded to by the tree motif wallpaper on the opposite wall. In the bedroom, the graphite velour bed and the decoration hanging above the headboard stand out perfectly against the cobalt wall. And all of this is topped off with a red-orange brick on the ceiling, which warms up the interior and gives it a unique atmosphere,” add the FABRYK-ART architects.
