The original appearance of the villa built in the half of 20th century was partially disrupted by later modifications. However the visual expression of the interior was still strong and became a base for the new proposal. Some of the characteristic interior elements are preserved or renewed. These are doors with frames, windows, parquet floors and cast iron radiators. The new contemporary elements are used only for completion of the atmosphere. Light tones of dominating natural materials are accentuated by some supplements of black or bright yellow colour. The house will still be enriched by a wide range of decorations, mostly antique objects, which were always a delight for the couple.

In place of the former extension, a new one is designed and it consists of a vestibule,bigger cloakroom and a storage room. The dominating element of the entrance hall is an original wooden staircase that leads to the sleeping rooms in the attic. On the opposite side of the hall a new built-in wardrobe is designed with an integrated entrance to the bathroom and toilet. Relaxation zone of the living room is partially separated from the workroom by a partition with an opening. The workroom may be completely separated and occasionally used as a guest room. Round corner situated between the relaxation and kitchen area is supposed to be the most exclusive spot in the house, that is why a big round table is placed here. Some important changes are proposed also in the kitchen. An enlarged area, worktop orientation, connection to the new storage room and most of all new big frech door leading to the garden contributes to a pleasant living.
