200 sqm | 2014
A penthouse apartment in Tel-Aviv was planned for an elderly couple, which asked to accommodate the house in accordance to their needs and personal style. After years of living in Tel-Aviv, they decided to move to a bigger and luxurious apartment in which they can host their extended family. Therefore, we created a spacious public space that includes the kitchen, the dining room and the living room, along with abilities to make eye contact and communication between them. In addition, we kept on maintaining the connection with the outside and with the inviting balcony, which widens the public space and allows to host outside as well.
Via changing the apartment’s original plan from five rooms to four rooms, we managed to receive a wide and comfortable space as well as a sense of openness. In order to maintain the opened look and create an elegant and warm atmosphere we used various materials and light shades with emphasis on white and wood. The floor was covered with light stone, mostly white furniture was selected and a television wall, cladded with wood, continues towards the hall, produces texture and depth. The wall planned in a minimalist style with a low shelf to its length which allows a display of ornaments and decoration. A couple of white libraries and a large mirror which stands on the floor in front of the dining room, enlarge the space and blur its limits.
In the kitchen, we have integrated white fronts along with marble and aluminum to create a classic and clean look that will remain updated over time. A niche that was planned to be in the center of the closet wall and emphasized by an updated clad, expands the worktop and adds a visual interest.
