A small 100 square metre apartment located in the Trnava, Slovakia, built in 1719 and recently restructured into this beautiful dwelling fitting for a couple. Peter Jurkovič and JRKVC fit a lot of nice features in this Trnava apartment, namely the herringbone parquetry floors, complemented by blond timber beams above. A mountain of natural light and high ceiling heights make the room appear bigger than first thought.
For a small home, aspects like the generously sized kitchen with plenty of bench space and a wood burner are luxuries. Furthermore, a hidden door located in the bookcase leads to the master bedroom. Jurkovič didn’t set out to create a secret room but saw an opportunity to incorporate the door into the floor to ceiling bookcase without hindering the aesthetics of the room. Not for everyone, but this Trnava apartment features a cool space saving idea that appeals to the Indiana Jones in us all.
