A completely renovated first apartment

We received an email from Ron and it started off like this: "I'm 27 years old and live in Tel Aviv Israel, currently an industrial design student. Me and my girlfriend just bought our first apartment and decided to design it completely by ourselves." Now before I continue I have got to show you a few of the before photos.


And some info on what went on after they had their way with their new apartment:
"In short we re-did the whole place:
Tore down the wall in the kitchen opening it up to the living room and dining area.
United the the bathroom making one long and spacious bathroom
Made the bedroom bigger by closing a indoor balcony.
A bar that comes out of the wall.

I personally designed and built most of the items seen in the pictures:
Large wall clock
Floating unit below the tv
round table and red chairs
table, pipe lamp and the cats playing area which is hung in the red room
faucet in the bathroom
wooden bar
lights in the living room (with red cords)
bed and side table in bedroom.

I cannot even put into words how in awe I am of Ron's talent. Seriously. This apartment is FULL of creative and such well-executed items. See for yourselves. (I told him I may steal the cat play area idea). Check out his website HERE.

And SO MUCH MORE after the jump.

This apartment is amazing. I really, really, want that wall clock. It's so whimsical but still adult. I really hope he has taken that faucet idea to IKEA so I can buy it. Good job.

I am in love. This is on my radar because I am about to do the same with a home I just bought. If I may pry a little, will you tell me about how much was spent on the entire renovation? That will give me a great reference point for my project. Thanks for sharing your work, you are both very talented.
All the best,
Zachary Krasman

This is one heck of a before and after! The large clock feature in the living area is very cool. Thanks for sharing.

Your kitchen, living room and bathroom look amazing. But that was seriously the best you could do for the bedroom?

I love this whole place. Especially, the in-wall shelf thing. Amazing! I wish I had this much creativity stirring around in my brain.

25 Aug 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKristyan

I couldn't find one thing I didn't love! Such great ideas, new, refreshing and functional. Do you need a job? Truly inspired.

25 Aug 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCathy

Yes I do!!! What are you offering?

25 Aug 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRon Benshoshan

This is absolutely Amazing!!!! I love the way everything about this. The only thing that didn't intrigue me fully is how bland the way the bed is and the set up.

You definetly have talent. You are a new age artist. Can't wait to see more of your work in the future. Hopefully in one of those top of the line design magazines. =] Great job!!!!!!!
