An architecture studio ensures that a prewar warehouse in Szczecin, Poland, formerly used by a marmalade factory, is well-preserved.
By burnishing historic details and adjusting the floor plan, multidisciplinary studio Loft Szczecin restored and transformed a loft in a warehouse that dates from before World War II. The living room rug is a Polish textile from the 1930s.
Much of the 1950s and '60s furniture collection comes from Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Netherlands.
In addition to reconstructing an open living room, Loft Szczecin had to subdivide four smaller spaces to create privacy in the expansive warehouse.
Loft Szczecin designed several pieces of original plywood furniture for the kitchen. The jet-black refrigerator is from Smeg.
In most of the loft, the original wood flooring and the herringbone pattern of the vaulted brick ceiling have been carefully preserved.
