Latvian tradition meets Swedish furniture! The folk dance group Austris needs a designer to lend them a hand. The dancers are longing for a well-organised storage space for their robes, but the space has its challenges. There is a window that would be needed for occasional paperwork but is not beneficial for the clothes, as they tend to become discoloured over time if subjected to daylight. So a well-thought-out solution for clothes storage is a must.
Before: lots and lots of everything
Tucked at the far end of an elongated chamber rests a single window, casting a soft glow upon a collection of traditional Latvian robes and accessories. Amidst the historic treasures, the room craves a revival—a makeover longing for order and efficient organizing solutions. Within its embrace lies the promise of a renewed space, a canvas awaiting the strokes of creative transformation and revitalization.
After: a dressing room fit for Hollywood
Adorning the longest wall, an open wardrobe solution beckons—an ever-evolving canvas for traditional dance ensembles. Adaptable and expandable, it graciously holds attire and accessories. A mirror, framed by Hollywood lights, stands sentinel, ready to reflect the elegance of every twirl and step, inviting a dance through time.
How to store accessories
Designed specifically for the dance group's performances, a storage haven emerges—drawers and shelves housing crowns and intricate Latvian jewelry. Each piece finds sanctuary within labeled boxes, maintaining impeccable order and safeguarding against dust. This specialized space stands as a testament to reverence for tradition and meticulous organization, ensuring every adornment gleams for the stage.
A touch of freshness
Breathing life into the renovated interior, vibrant greenery takes root, imparting a revitalizing touch. Lush plants, nestled in strategic corners and perched upon elegant stands, infuse the space with nature's grace. Their verdant allure softens the lines, bestowing a sense of tranquility and vitality upon the renewed ambiance.
For guests and for own comfort
A cozy sitting corner beckons with a table and four chairs—a haven for visiting dance groups or impromptu gatherings. Nestled within the studio's embrace, it offers both comfort and functionality, fostering camaraderie and accommodating brief, productive meetings or shared moments of artistic exchange.
"This space has its own challenges. The most thought had to go into planning the clothing storage solution on a budget. An open solution allows you to see everything at once and find the needed things quickly. This particular system can also be changed and added to over time, as well as completed with different accessories to make it even more functional."
