Bularnia is an honest, functional office space on the ground floor of postindustrial
building on the outskirts of Cracov. The goal was to introduce more natural light to dark
and overpowering interior. This move redefined new proportions of space and optically
enlarged narrow and low room. What's more, light and transparent finishing materials,
such as glass, delicate steel mesh and perforated boards were used to ephasize the
openness of new office space.
Positioning the offices on the ground floor established strong connection with building's
exterior – on one side the office space is merged with a lush garden, on the other
connects to the building's courtyard.
Existing diagonal interior wall divides the workplace into two rooms, into which we put
two additional volumes, that reorganize space and functions. Two similar rooms had
their identities rebuilt and diversified. Small budget implied the simple character of the
details. The interior is dominated by white and grey colours, diversified with few intense
In these mellow spaces filled with natural light the ceiling is the strongest graphic
element. In one room it is made from steel mesh, onto which we loosely put few
lightbulbs. The ceiling of the latter is a composition of dark green lamps and cables.
