Man Cave

Elzbieta Janowska
Building Company:
ABK, Emilceramica


Man Cave by student Elzbieta Janowska captures the essence of simplicity, minimalism and functionality. Intended for a single man in Poland, the space effortlessly combines elements of sophisticated restraint with sleek modernity. Wooden-look tiles from ABK ground the space and evoke a sense of warmth, while incorporating elements of practicality for easy maintenance. In the kitchen, subtle hints of movement are brought in through the veining of Emilceramica’s marble-effect porcelain tiles, creating an elevated, yet inviting area. Featuring a dynamic stone accent wall, each material in the apartment delicately complements each other, establishing a harmonious, stunningly subdued setting.
