This 42 sqm skinny apartment, located in the heart of Tel-Aviv, has been transformed by Interior designer Yael Perry into a minimalist white bright space. Conceived as an holiday home town for a family who likes to entertain guests, the apartment features a bright living space, a kitchen, one bedroom and a wide bathroom.
Before renovation, there was no storage space, no wardrobe in the bedroom and a tiny bathroom; all factors that didn’t suit its new owners. The designer who wanted provide a sense of unique aesthetic and to make the space feel more spacious and bright, chose to design the apartment in one shade of color – white.
The apartment’s floor was covered with a minimalistic white parquet, the walls were painted in white color and all carpentry and furniture items were designed in white as well.
The new occupier requested to include some of their own furniture, including as Eero Aarnio’s Parabel table and four Kite chairs designed by Karim Rashid. The uniqueness of the furniture affected the project’s plan and the conceptual design of the project. The space was too narrow to accommodate a small living room and dining room furniture; therefore, the living room furniture is used for the dining area as well.
In order to create a functional kitchen with storage space in this tiny apartment, the kitchen was placed along the apartment and integrated electric appliances were placed in the kitchen cabinets in order to keep the kitchen sleek and minimal.
An internal wall separating the living room from the bedroom was replaced with a custom-made closet that can be used for both spaces. On the living room side, it provides a mounting surface for a flat-screen TV, while on the bedroom side it is used as a wardrobe.
