Communication through contrast is phrase which can be used to describe intervention in MJ20 appartment – old salon in the center of Belgrade. Starting with common areas and hallways, following entrance zone of the appartment and all the others zones that are treated – this way of communication is visible and present.
Elements that are tipical and caracteristic for salon appartments are taken, re-thinked and puted back in the place as redesigned and new. They evoce spirit of the past times, where they belong, in a subtle and unobtrusive manner. Decorative skirtings, fireplace and shelves are some of the elements which function on this, already mentioned way.
Decorative skirting is probably one of the most impressive elements of the salon appartments, one era and time. This element brings spirit of the past and everything salon appartment stands for into the ambient of new and modern. Skirting becomes part of the modern interior and co-exists with it, rather then they spoke through conflict.
