Cool as a cucumber, the FNL Apartment by Paradowski Studio drips in luxurious tactility. With a summer house attitude set amongst the city noise of Warsaw, Poland, the varied stylistic references – from the 70s, Hollywood regency, space-age and Asian culture – seamlessly blend for a residence rich in ease and comfort.

The somewhat unconventional abode was designed for a young couple with their personal character felt throughout. A certain austere charm and organicity are mixed with distinct colour choices and room dividers creating a sense of intimacy reminiscent of work by Italian artist Carlo Mollino.

A made-to-measure shelving system, executed in raw rolled steel and weighing over 600kg, lines the living room wall. A raw textural delight, the steel bones are bolstered by decorative wood and marble inserts. Styling adds depth with a screen reminiscent of Jean Dunards designs and a Japanese inspired solid oak coffee table. The Amura Lapis sofa in red pops against the subdued, earthy plaster walls and polished concrete floors. Together with a set of vintage easy chair armchairs upholstered in a cream boucle fabric their swelling, curvaceous forms are a contemporary take on classic design.

The kitchen has been designed with occasional use in mind. With a minimalist approach, it focuses on simple forms and high-quality materials. A stone travertine washbasin sits farmhouse style nestled in the complimentary countertop, a natural addition to the palette. Cabinets float above the ground, made from a structure of black lacquered steel profiles and clad in ebony creating a light expression in the space. A shelf in patinated bronze finish curves along the wall acting as a continuation of its much larger living room counterpart.

A custom-designed table made of blackened oak is the central fixture of the dining room. Flanked by Vitra Standard chairs by Jean Prouve its encased in a black partitioned glass box. A painting by Christophe Meyer contrasts with the white Diesel Foscarini floor lamp.

The guest rooms are covered with veneer stylised from the 1960s giving it a “box” character. A red Verpan lamp standing on a custom-made small shelf in the same colour adds a flourish to the room while breaking up the simplicity. Small tumbled marble tiles and oak veneer in a golden shade feel resonant of a 1960’s sauna.

A decadent brass door antiqued with hand-applied patina leads to the master suite. The bed and wardrobe with a fabric finish and patinated brass legs sit upon a concrete platform. A custom wavy oak screen with matching nightstands protrudes from the back wall framing one side of the bed. Not to be missed, the drop-dead gorgeous bathtub covered in veneer on either side and a stone top that corresponds to the wall panel is comfortably in reach of the bedroom, just separated by a glass sliding wall.

Rich in materiality with a minimalist mindset this interior straddles the two worlds of utility and excess, proposing the case that it need not be one or the other.
