What is the importance of plants in a person’s home living space? This is the story about a 95 square meter apartment with 4 fronts and full of light that as part of a renovation is dealing with this question. The love of the members of the house for growing house plants challenged us to find surprising design solutions all over the house. Examples of solutions can be seen in opening a balcony to the green boulevard at the expense of the living room space, planning furniture that is adapted to growing plants and thinking ahead about utilizing areas for growing plants even at height, and even in the bathroom. We wrapped the entrance hall with carpentry, which makes it possible to store all of the entryway’s stuff: glasses, a dog leash, bags…. We also incorporated a bench that allows you to sit down immediately when you enter the house and take off your shoes. This carpentry rotates inside and also becomes the kitchen’s storage cabinets.
I am envious of all of the light and storage in this apartment. As much as I adore old homes they typically lack in both of those areas. Plants sure do seem to thrive here, unlike in my home 🙂 Located in Tel Aviv and designed by Ma/Deux. Photography by Sivan Askayo.
