studioDo has designed ‘MB duplex’ as a two-level holiday apartment for a family that often visits tel aviv. the architects have approached the renovation with the concept of a holiday home as a place where one enjoys a more dynamic lifestyle, a place of leisure, where you can relax, entertain and enjoy the great mediterranean climate.

the design strategy was to create a dynamic living and sleeping area on the first floor and an open plan leisure area on the rooftop level. the architects have designed the lower level as a flexible space that can adapt according to different scenarios. when the clients travel with their children, the main living area can be divided into a salon and an additional bedroom by a system of sliding sound-proof doors. in addition, the entrance level includes a master bedroom with a bathroom, guestroom and general bathroom.

the client’s desire was to enjoy the mediterranean climate as much as possible. for that reason, the rooftop was designed with an open plan, vast floor to ceiling windows overlooking the city. it comprises a large stainless steel kitchen, a dining area, an outdoor living space and an urban roof garden with an outdoor shower.

the material palette consists of large grey stone tiles, wood and black iron. the original layout was completely transformed: the interior walls were removed to open up the space and to enjoy the natural light of the western exposure. the original staircase, which was previously tucked between two walls, is now framed by a light black iron rail that leads from the entrance level to the top floor. as part of the design concept, the air conditioning pipe remained exposed, as well as the rails of the wooden sliding doors. the hand-picked interiors include a mix between custom-made carpentry, high-end designer furniture, collectors vintage items and a selection of local artworks.
