Riverpark is an upscale new housing complex in Bratislava built in 2010. Located on the Danube riverside, it is not far from the castle and historic streets of the Old Town. At the same time you can enjoy the river and its floodplain forest from the promenade - an extension of an existing downtown promenade that stretches around the left bank of the river.

Originally built with 3 bedrooms, the apartment was adapted to best suit the needs of its owners. Two of the bedrooms merged into a master suite with comfortable bathroom and naturally lit walk-in closet.

Natural materials - oak wood and porous natural stone are prevalent in the interior. All the floors are clad in custom made solid oak floor that visually links all the spaces. Same solid oak treated darker is used for most of the carpentry in the apartment - built in or stand alone. The wood is robust but feels vintage and almost instigates you to touch it and feel the roughness of its surface. Same applies to the stone clad walls - sandstone in the living room and limestone in the bathrooms. Each slab is of a different thickness thus creating a play of light and shadows. Highest quality workmanship goes without saying.

The prevalent materials are complemented by a choice of furniture and lighting by italian, spanish and czech design labels. These however do not become a centrepiece of the interior that is dominated by wood and stone.

"These provide an honesty and rawness so rarely seen these days – an antithesis to the glitz, luxe and glamour."
