It’s always interesting to look at an interior designer’s home. You can enter the designer’s world and see what truly defines their style and what their idea of a cozy home is. Like everyone else, each designer has a unique style so imagine the result when two interior designers plan their perfect home together. That’s what happened when Attila F Kovacs and Zsuzsa Megyesi chose to make an old factory tower their new home.
The two designers are the founders of A+Z Design Studio. They started the company in 2009 using their different background experience to take on new and unique projects. Attila had previouly designed award-wining museums, residences and commercial structures while Zsuzsa was specialized in art history and aesthetics.
The two completed their home in 2015. They chose to move into a tower-like structure that was previously part of the HFF Kniting Factory complex. The structures date back to 1915 and they’re located in the Southern part of the city. Originally built as a weapon factory, the tower called Loft 19 and the rest of the factory complex are protected industrial monuments.
The designers had to leave the exterior of the building intact but were free to decorate the interior however they liked. This resulted in a personal mix of styles and eras founded on the original elements which still play an important role despite all the changes and additions.
A lot of the original features were preserved. For example, the old iron doors are still a part of the interior design. The original beams were taken down and repurposed into bookshelves. The windows remained the same, offering views of the desolate surroundings. They’re large and they let in abundant natural light, making the rooms seem large and spacious.
The space is full of special pieces. A lot of them have been collected over time, one by one. They come from flea markets and antique shops that the designers visited and they were now finally brought together. Other furniture pieces and accessories were created by the designers themselves specifically for this space.
The bedroom is an interesting space, being a bit different from all the other rooms. Its interior is more cohesive and has a boudoir-like ambiance. It can be reached via the staircase and it occupies the upper floor together with its bathroom. It has patterned purple wallpaper that covers one third of the walls and antique furniture accents.
The bathroom has an unusual shape, with odd angles and corners. It’s hidden behind the bedroom walls and it’s an open space, with no door or wall separating it from the bedroom. The tub sits in a corner where three walls meet and above it there’s an eye-catching and glamorous chandelier.
Lots of other interesting and unusual accessories and accent pieces are spread throughout the apartment. This includes furniture, wall decorations and even the unique choice of colors.
