Undertaking a ground floor apartment renovation with respect to the historic past of the building can be a challenging task. The wish of the homeowners was to convert the ground floor into their principal residence and the challenge – to preserve the original character of the space among modern fixtures and finishes. The main goal was to create a more spacious, bright and functional living space suitable for the lifestyle of the homeowners. In order to open the space, internal walls were removed or stripped and in the demolition process revealed some quite interesting discoveries. An original brick common wall was revealed on one end of the space while the other end uncovered a wall of original wooden boards. Both elements were preserved as they add a real character and warmth to the rooms and as well.

Large, white ceramic tiles cover the walls of the bathroom. Some of the wood that was revealed in the demolition process was integrated into the bathroom counter and the combination of materials gives the small bathroom an elegant look. A part of the original moldings around the doors were kept to remind of the colonial character of the neighborhood. Using materials as concrete in the flooring of the hall and bathroom adds an earthy texture to the space, complemented by natural wood flooring in the rest of the rooms, which is reminiscent of the original flooring. The final result is a spectacular ground floor apartment renovation which successfully combines old and new.
