Fortress Turned Family Suativi Gets Major Makeover

An 18th century Polish fort is breathing new life thanks to its new inhabitants and a stellar architect. What was once old and decrepit is now fresh, sleek, and modern thanks to innovative design. The dark masculine theme of the space plays on the stronghold this property once was -- although with a family of 5 moving in, the old fort has to be strong in new ways. The design team has done this by using entirely natural materials such as oak, concrete, and natural stone such as basalt, marble, and glass. You won't believe how they've transformed this space, so get exploring.
