Renovating this Tel Aviv apartment located in a 1930’s Bauhaus building the designers Lital Ophir and Ilana Bronfen aimed towards the luminous and fresh expression of worthy classical features with a taste of contemporary innovations and a free float of premises.
Featuring some characteristic design pieces, custom-made structures and bold color accents the apartment premises offer an elegant and light expression of contemporary design and carefully selected materials palette that includes Carrera marble, herringbone wooden floors, entwinement of glass and steel – all of which are a nod to the classic charm of the building.
The open plan living premises include the luminous whiteness of a specially designed reading corner (with custom-made book shelving, contemporary design furniture pieces and intriguing and modernistic TV structure), an inviting sitting area with a bold color accent in deep blue and of course the expressive dining and kitchen zones. The dining table with its mismatched white chairs ( with elegant and classic features) and intriguing design modern lamps – offers a light and elegantly neutral separation between the blue-sofa accent and the characteristic green cube structure created to host the storage spaces and the kitchen appliances – an intriguing sculptural choice that gives unique character and dynamic accent to the design composition. Transparent and airy division structures composed of glass and metal frames are spread throughout the apartment and contribute to the luminous feel and the free float of light.
The bedrooms also include custom-made structures like the double bed box in the children’s room, and light contemporary design including entwinement of pure white and black elements together with trendy brass details – like the lighting solutions in the master bedroom. And just look at that delightful and charming balcony retreat space – a perfect place for relaxation and enjoinment of the surrounding green. The bathrooms are gravitating towards functional minimalism with contemporary and fresh expression. Here we can see simple and classy black and white combinations with characteristic brass details that give sparkle and modernistic feel and can be met throughout the apartment’s design.
