Charismatic Loft Apartment in an Old Marmalade Factory

Charismatic Loft Apartment in an Old Marmalade Factory (1)

This charismatic loft was recently completed by Loft Kolasinski, a interior design firm based in Szczecin, Poland (north of Berlin). Our project was done in a former warehouse of a marmalade factory, which operated before World War II in Szczecin (Poland). The project involved reconstruction of one of the open spaces for an apartment divided into 4 rooms (living room with a kitchenette, bedroom, office, bathroom).

In the most part of the loft we preserved historic, wooden floors that have been restored. All the kitchen furniture were designed and built by Loft Szczecin. Countertops were made of white marble and kitchen furniture of plywood.

The rest of the furnishing is vintage furniture and lamps from the 50s and 60s from Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Netherlands. The furniture have been renovated by Loft Szczecin. For decoration we used a polish rug from the 30s. [Via email – Courtesy of Loft Szczecin]  Photographs: Karolina Bak 

Team description:
Loft Kolasiński company does in interior and furniture design. We have our own carpentry shop, in which we produce furniture and equipment (mirrors, etc.). Often made bespoke, especially for our clients. In our projects we try to use rare furniture, lamps, ceramics, posters, carpets, etc. We gladly use items created  between the 20s and 60s. Furniture often undergo renovation. We buy them in auctions and from befriended sellers. Quite often our projects concern adaptation of lofts, post-industrial buildings or old houses. One of the most interesting challenges was an adaptation of a 100 year old forge.
