Oak timber clads the walls and ceiling to create the sensation of a "cocoon" with views of the mountain beyond, with inherent characteristics that form textures and colours while evoking sensations of warmth, cold balancing feelings of soft and hard to the touch. Concealed sliding panels, discrete hand pulls and hidden cupboards conceal storage throughout the Chalet.   More

A secret garden apartment in Tel Aviv

A Garden Apartment in central Tel AvivI met with the owners of the apartment, a couple with two children (the third child was born later) before the construction of the building began. They had many ideas, dreams and great taste.  We knew this apartment was going to be a special, joyous and creative one. It should be a practical and comfortable living space suitable for a young family with energetic children.   After a long period of joint planning and execution, we managed to complete this project this year. Let's take a short journey to this special place: Whilst walking to the apartment through a standard corridor similar to a new building in Tel Aviv, you open a door which leads you to a surprise – you are lead to a s...

HUNT restaurant

"HUNT" is a new restaurant, which was opened on the place of an oriental kitchen. The concept has changed radically: there was no trace from the rich Chinese restaurant. It became an all new place, unique in content and based on natural motifs - both in the kitchen and in the interior. The restaurant combines three concepts that are reflected in interior solutions - bar with fresh seafood, gastronomic and meat dishes.   The name "HUNT" has been interpreted in interior design: natural motifs and materials prevail here. Space is full of wood, stone, leather, clay decor, an abundance of dry plants. Hunt is historically about strong people, the rough side of nature, harsh rocks and endless fields. And this is also the associations that r... More

Marble, wood, paint. Rice

Marble, Wood, Paint. Rice, where new materials overlap the existing ones to promote the emergence of new surfaces and textures, transcending the visual and pursuing a narrower relationship with time and space. In the central room is inserted a Grigio Carnico continuous marble surface which allows to see behind it, separated from the wall, the original textures. By doing this, it is possible to give volume to a two-dimensional surface, enhancing the visual qualities that this specific marble provides. Once, this marble was used for the interior of financial institutions; nevertheless, the temporal closure of the marble quarry turned it into a scarce material. By understanding the hallway and the stairs as transition spaces between...
