Tenement House on the Edge of a Park was an interior design project by Loft Kolasinski, completed in 2016. The original Tenement building, built on an edge of a park in Szczecin, Poland, was completed in 1907.

This renovation utilized the bones of this century old tenement building: the original hardwood floors of the apartment were renovated, and the stucco elements were restored from the original.

To accessorize the restored apartment, the focus was on sourcing European mid-century design. Lighting elements are sourced from Poland, France, Italy, and the Czech Republic. The bed, created by the interior designers Loft Kolasiński, is made of Oak wood with an oil finish. The living room carpet is a ‘60’s design by Antonin Kybal. The wooden furniture set was created by Grete Jalka. To complete the look, a framed vintage street poster of the movie “Matador” from 1986 leans against the wall.

The 120 square meter apartment is a tasteful time capsule, utilizing midcentury design to restore the tenement-style apartment to its former glory.
