The starting point in creating the interior was the investor’s collection of paintings, antique furniture and extensive library of books. The apartment was divided and furnished in order to expose these items, but in such a way that they do not compete and do not dominate the space. All the new furniture pieces are very minimalistic and free of any visible details. The books have been closed in double-sided bookcases, which also serve as separators of the communication area and they also contain a bio fireplace and a TV set. The kitchen was also designed in a minimalistic way and all the appliances have been hidden in closets.
„A change is a moment when you have the courage to think in a diferent way.

“Every year, in the beginning of May, the next edition of an experimental project called KontenerART begins. It’s an initiative of independent artists in Poznań – a place where you can relax, meet people and take part in whole creative process, learning new skills during many art workshops, concerts and exhibitions.
House on the Horizon near Poznan is a typical family house that has \”something more\” than a typical project. In a small surface of the building with double garage, designed T-shaped, there is comfortable space for a family of three or four. Living area (135 m2) consists of kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms, a guest room (optional third bedroom), toilet, bathroom . A small area is organized very comfortably – day and night zones do not interfere with each other, and individual rooms with large glass panels give a sense of space and contact with garden.
“We are a family with little children, who will go to school soon.” This idea was a starting point to design a multifunctional house space, which brings together a lot of different duties – both school and domestic ones. The investor wants to create a friendly and functional space.
The purpose of the project was the rearrangement of an existing house, characterized by a multiplicity of levels of the interior. It has up to 5 levels, with 90 m2 of the living space. The significant problems of this system were: communication nuisance and low penetration of natural light inside the residential space. The project was focused on natural light exposure improvement and bringing into it a high-quality artificial light as well as facilitation home program by moving the existing functional system. Ascetic design and bright colours of the interior made it possible to emphasise the experience of openness space.
“We have dreamed about the pinkest and most positive and open place in the world. COME CHECK IT OUT”
This incredibly innovative idea of combining a shop with a café is defned by an even more innovative and brave concept: that all the products sold here will be… pink!
This unique pink task was given to the architects from mode:lina studio, meanwhile the brand concept as well as the communication strategy was designed by the MINIMA studio.
The main reason for the extraordinary shape of the building was a narrow and triangular plot. Such a dynamic shape ought to be, in our opinion emphasized by a matching dynamic form. The plot is a wedge between two busy streets: Piątkowska st. & Aleje Solidarności st. and a tramway line. Paradoxically, vast number of limitations and prescriptions made the design process much easier. The parallels about the building looking like a vessel are funny on one hand, but quite accurate on the other. The form had to be “sharpen” giving the outcome of marine analogies. JET OFFICE is a shape and form, not a decoration.
