Designers at Kreatif Design have successfully renovated an old apartment in Ljubljana from the 1960s. At first glance, it may be a simple renovation of a conventional flat, but if we take a closer look at the floor plans, we find that we are witnessing the true power of good design. Namely, despite the large number of load-bearing walls, with good planning, we created a three-room apartment from a two-room flat. With a good use of space, we increased the value of the building, and at the same time made it usable for the next 40 years.
In our studio, we are constantly making a difference, and so it was this time when finding a solution. We have fully fulfilled the client’s wish for a flexible apartment for a student, who now has the option of renting an additional room. The apartment can be later transformed into a family home due to the additionally created room, which meets Slovenian needs. We didn’t stop at the first possible variant, but we researched all the layout options and in the end really found the one that suits the client. We could stick to conventional solutions, but we are making a difference.
