NHR Apartment by Gut Gut

In our March 2012 issue we toured this small Bratislava, Slovak Republic, apartment in the story True Value. Now we're having a look at another hip flat by the same firm, Gut Gut. This time the scale is a bit bigger—the renovated space is over 1,100 square-feet instead of just 516—but the smart, colorful, and cost-conscious approach is the same. So click through to see how this up-and-coming Slovakian firm recast the ground floor of an early-90s apartment building as a stylish and scrappy family home. 

The real heart of the home is the open space made up by the kitchen and dining room. Here Gut Gut employed a few inexpensive measures to get a lot of bang from a small space. Contrasting colors on the kitchen shelving, a wall of chalkboard paint (a move echoed in one of the children's bedrooms) and the grain of exposed plywood all activate a space done with pretty humble materials.
