Trendy Terrazzo and Herringbone Parquet at Renovated Apartment by Alexandru Szűz Pop


Trendy terrazzo and gorgeous herringbone parquet, row concrete for the ceilings and industrial style lighting solutions all paired up with trendy furniture elements, the very modern black metal, and glass separations and leather elements adding decadent luxury – a magnificent example of modern and stylish urban ambiance.

The Romanian designer Alexandru Szűz Pop renovated the early 1900’s building apartment by renowned architect Mende Valerian (whose projects characterize with bi-dimensional fields engraved in the masonry facade) and give it a contemporary read and free float of premises.

Aiming to increase the natural flow of light and the dynamic circulation of everyday functions the architects created a central volume with timeless and warm-minimalist interior compositions to suit the needs of the new owner. Preserving door and window frames and underlining the original ceilings and initial electrical paths the designers maintain the connection of the modern dwelling with its historical shell.

Seamless transition between the terrazzo and oak flooring and the very popular lately glass and thin black metal frame separation defines the living from, the dining and kitchen areas without disturbing the natural flow of light. The overall atmosphere of the apartment is characterized by the raw textures, natural tones, terrazzo and wooden oak floors, balanced with early 20th-century furniture pieces.

The presence of wooden parquet and terrazzo flooring gives a classical touch to the modern luxury and white minimalism of the decor arrangement. A white custom-made cube in the central volume hosts the kitchen appliances, the bathroom space (stylishly clad in terrazzo surfaces) and the wardrobe of the master bedroom. The functional division of premises is composed of clear lines and minimalist structures.  Photos by Kinga Tomos;
