Loft in Marmalade got its quirky name from the building’s history as part of a marmalade factory in Szczecin, Poland that was active until the start of WWII. The design firm Loft Szczecin went to pains to keep much of the original character of the building for an outcome that is unexpected and unique.
Loft Szczecin’s design centers on connecting the updated space to its rich history and maintaining authenticity. They preserved the original wooden floors running through most of the apartment’s four separated spaces. Historic flooring complements the warm character of the its exposed brick archways and barrel vaulted ceiling.
The design firm sourced décor from the 1950s and 60s in countries around Europe, including Denmark, the Czech Republic, Poland, and the Netherlands. These mid-century modern pieces add to the loft’s vintage cred. For the kitchen, they custom built furniture out of a light plywood that contrasts beautifully with the floors and made counter tops of classic white marble.
