Polish design firm mode:lina put on their thinking caps when it came to designing the interior of this new house in Poznań, Poland. With 140 square meters (or 1,506 square feet) to work with, the Beam&Block House was in need of clever storage solutions, playful pops of color, and most importantly, some imagination.

The team got to work re-imagining the hall and space under the stairs to include built-in storage and a dog house (see above in first photo). I bet they have one happy pooch!

They also used sliding mirrored doors to give the illusion of more space.

A bold cheery yellow is used throughout the home on doors and window trim, helping to balance out the coldness of the raw grey concrete floors and ceilings.

Built-in bookcases are added for storage in the living room. The dark grey walls almost mask the TV and make it fade from view when not in use.

An island in the kitchen was built for extra counter space and the small kitchen was framed in with angled headers to define the space.

Angled walls and details are spotted throughout the space making sure things never get boring.

The grey and yellow color scheme continues to the bedrooms creating a cohesive vibe throughout. There’s plenty of white to break it up though.
