israeli architects ranaan stern and shany tal have redesigned an artist’s central tel aviv apartment into a versatile 20sqm studio workspace. the adaptable interior contains a varied family and personal collection of 2D pieces dating from the 1940’s to today, which was specifically measured for storing. they were organized and ordered according to groups, sizes and artistic connections. four separate proportions were allocated for, with each cell, cupboard or drawer crafted according to these requirements – only when the drawers are opened is the colorfully painted mosaic on the sides revealed.
in addition, different areas were planned and built for displaying and storing work, tools and materials. the smaller compartments can be taken down from the larger framed units and placed on the table. removable sliding doors are actually constructed of pallets that can be used for presentation boards or as modular easels.
