83 square meters in a 1930s building in central poznan, poland have been given a second life due to the diligent work of architects agnieszka owsiany and adam wiercinski. designed for student accommodation, the space was divided into four independent rooms, with a spacious common area that includes both kitchen and dining area and one and a half bath.

necessities of contemporary student life were carefully considered in planning, as was the historical value inherent in the building. original elements including transom doors, casement windows, and wood flooring were preserved with care, highlighted further by a limited palette of white, gray, and select splashes of color. furnishings, such as desks combined with radiator covers, small tables, magnetic boards, dining table and benches were designed in addition to the space. functional and stylish, one can only hope its tenants do their best to keep it that way.
