interior design studio dalit lilienthal has completed the renovation of an apartment in tel aviv, to generate a flexible, modifiable family home. the whole layout of the flat was altered to create an open plan interior, that allows natural light and air to flow right through.

studio dalit lilienthal has demolished all inner walls to design a permeable new dwelling. at the same time, the design incorporates large windows, which ensure ventilation and at the same time, allow residents to feel closer to the outdoors. despite this open character, the house is designed to easily generate more intimate area when needed, without compromising its spaciousness.

instead of designing a corridor to lead residents towards the bedrooms, the architects have created a box, incorporating various storage solutions and functions. this structure defines the bedrooms and the workspace, while still allowing a pleasant flow and effortless circulation to develop within the interior. the box features a set of sliding doors, made from a metal mesh sheet, allowing light to penetrate through while establishing privacy between the public and private areas. when these doors open and close, the apartment’s appearance changes completely. 




the overall design applies a monochromatic color scheme, enhanced by natural materials such as different types of woods along with a mix of metals. in the kitchen, the materiality includes stainless steel surfaces and iron elements, combined with custom-made carpentry offering ample storage solutions. with meticulous attention to detail, combining comfort and aesthetics, the dwelling provides an intimate open-plan, modular space.
