A Factory Turned Into an Apartment with Industrial Structure

This apartment located in central Prague, designed by architect Klara Valova SMLXL studio appropriating the opportunity to buy one former ETA Regula factory.

The industrial design was replaced with plastic windows, although the developer had committed to keeping the original design. Since this was a corner apartment and windows played a key role in the interior, the change had unfortunately altered its overall character, despite the extraordinary size of the windows.

The main residential space was opened into the entering area as much as possible. We let the central column show to good advantage, as well as the ribs leading out of it. These form the basic construction of the entire building and create an interesting structure on the ceiling.

The structure has impact on the overall shape of the apartment, which is not rectangular.
