Maya Sheinberger Interior Design as Interior Architects

The apartment is on the 5th floor in a quiet street in TLV city center, designed for a couple and their two young children.
The apartment's layout is divided into two sections. The east wing is a large and spacious space with a living room, kitchen, and dining area facing a large terrace. The west wing includes the main bedroom, two children's rooms, and a bathroom that overlooks a second terrace. The design style incorporated natural materials (wood, iron, stone) and soft colors for a clean but warm and inviting look. A mixture of classic and modern furniture combined with slightly industrial items.

As you enter the living room, large floor-to-ceiling windows accompany the house's entire facade, leading to a large terrace overlooking the city's urban landscape. The whole space is paved with herringbone oak flooring in smokey tones. A minimalist and modular bookcase consists of hexagonal iron columns and iron shelves combined with blackened oak, and it provides space for a TV and display of books and ornaments. In the center of the living room is a stone-colored rug in black with a geometric pattern, and above it is A gray sofa, a wooden armchair, and a glass table with a black wooden leg.
