To avoid diminishing the circa-1931 Art Deco charms of an apartment in the Austrian capital of Vienna, German architecture firm IFUB devised a sleek, unobtrusive scheme to revamp the unit, one that incorporates discreet, minimalist storage and honors the flat's history. By replacing worn surfaces in the apartment—and reusing and/or restoring existing materials where possible—the firm was able to not only preserve its character, but also help re-inject some zest to some of the apartment's older features, like its covetable herringbone parquet floors. The designers also helped create custom storage solutions for their clients, including hallway storage and custom kitchen shelving and racks. Check it out!
