Most probably, this room hasn’t existed before. A century ago, the physical needs were mostly satisfied outside the area of living! However, it turnes out that the last tenant moved forward in the coming years and, to his comfort mixed with laziness, he equipped himself with a tiny space by removing one square meter from the room size. Did he really take an advantage of the bathroom? We don’t know. What was left, surely wasn’t so luxurious. Unquestionably, this 2,5 meter long and 1 meter wide ruin brought more trouble than joy in its usage. We also couldn’t extend the room but our architect – Kasia Grabowska, found the way to make it more useful. She advised to fix a corner leavatory and exchange a shower base for an incline drainage and enlarge the place by installing a new cupboard in a closed-in wall. Today the ,,white-ware’’ has been done. It is so beautiful now. Yet, the bathroom will become full of life and new colours when Alicja moves in. Therefore, we are going to clean all up, put on new bed-linien, fix a cooker and kitchen furniture, hang some decorations. We wish to create the safe place that will meet the expectations of our mentees. Then Alicja and Łukasz will finally feel like at home.
This is the first major project of Foundation METAPOMOC. We have gone through the fight for the best location and conditions of the flat (January 2016) and, after six months, we are just about to finish our project (June 2016). There is going to be a house-warming party, loads of home-made cake and many great pictures 🙂
