以色列开放式顶层公寓 | Raz Melamed
- Raz Melamed
The turquoise pool and the flora fluttering in the urban spirit turn this penthouse in Tel Aviv into a lovely corner overlooking a gray urban landscape, which sings out to the bustling city.
The apartment was designed for a couple with 3 girls and a dog who wanted a house with a pool along with a large outdoor kitchen, a living area, and a jacuzzi for perfect accommodation. Within the home, the privacy of each room alongside discreet and personal bathrooms were a priority.
Architect Raz Melamed took on the task and entered the project when the building was under construction. In collaboration with the building architect, structural changes were made to the columns and walls, including the unique aluminum design and the preparation of the infrastructure for it.
Melameds big challenge was the architecture of the floor that revolves around the core of the building, the stairs, and the elevators. This outline had created a situation where there was no one central space and therefore the division needed to be meticulous and creative. As a solution, the architect divided the floor into a public and private space facing each other.
In every Melamed project, a clean line stands out both in the design and in the materials and furniture. This perception appears in full throughout the home, when alongside the material and colorful tranquility there is a magical and relaxed homely atmosphere.
Longitudinal light strips create continuity in the ceiling of the house and even draw the gaze towards the living room and pool, as well as the vertical library. It is made of veneer for softness and warmth and is covered with black metal that hides the air conditioning and has thin shelves for accessories which emphasizes the thin design line. Opposite is a gray rug that defines the living room - the furniture combines the colors of the house and stands on legs, an element that the architect loves that creates space and reveals a maximum amount of space.
A black pergola opens from the living room for shade and protection from rain and houses a projector for outdoor cinema evenings. Spiral stairs wrapped in a thin, constructive railing lead from the pool to the roof with a kitchen, Jacuzzi and oven for a perfect hospitality experience.
On the balcony stands the highlight of the house - the pool! Thanks to the p of terraced building, this pool was seamlessly dug underground. Its longitudinal shape becomes narrow next to the master suite which is right next to it, making it possible to jumpy directly into the water as if you were in a luxury resort. Contributing to the designed look are rocks that create a surfing canal, and the low plants that allows a view of the landscape through the glass railing.
