Old Apartment Remodeled Using A Monochromatic Approach
The apartment you’re looking at is located in Tel Aviv, Israel, in a building that dates back to the 70’s. Although pretty old, the structure is in good shape and constant renovations each individual apartment in great condition. This particular one has a total surface of 150 square meters and in 2016 got a completely redesigned interior. The project was successfully completed by architect Oshir Asaban.
The interior of the apartment was completely transformed. First, everything was taken down in order to start over from scratch. As a result, the space was restructured and reorganized in order to be tailored to the needs and preferences of the new tenants. The architect chose a very simple and timeless color palette for the new interior decor. The apartment is now decorated in black and white. This ensures a look that never really goes out of style.
The entrance lobby divides the apartment into two zones. On one side there’s the public area which contains the living space, the open kitchen and the dining area. On the other side of the hallway is the private zone which houses two bedrooms, a family room and two bathrooms.
The social area is a very bright and open space. Natural light enters through the large windows and the length of the whole space is niceely emphasized by a custom-built wall unit. As far as the layout goes for this area, the lounge space is at the core with the kitchen and the dining space occupying the rest of the floor plan. There’s also a direct connection to the utility room and an open view to the balcony.
The dining area is a really cozy and bright space, with a large window that overlooks the garden and a round table that creates a really cozy and pleasant mood. It shares this portion of the apartment with a small workspace placed in the corner.
The monochrome palette which defines the entire apartment is complemented by brass, copper, iron and wood accents and this lovely combination can be best admired in the private areas. The bedrooms look and feel surprisingly warm and welcoming thanks to their layered design and the abundance of different textures which complete the look.
The bathroom are no less chic either. They continue the minimalistic chromatic palette in a way that allows them to stay cool and simple without feeling austere or too cold and unappealing. The occasional brass hardware accents on a vanity or the quirky tile pattern on the floor make these spaces a true part of the apartment.
