tel aviv apartment by raz melamed is conceived as both a home and an art gallery

israeli architect raz melamed has designed ‘a3’, an apartment for clients who work as art curators. being at once a welcoming home and an art gallery, the tel aviv dwelling is enriched with sunlight and natural materials maintained in beige hues for comfortable everyday living.

first, melamed addressed his client’s need for hosting guests. he placed the master bedroom close to the nursery bathroom by breaking walls and installing a glass partition. the wall opens or closes between the toilet and bathroom when needed, offering an elegant solution for guests. the public space floor continues into the service area creating continuity with the rest of the house.

the entrance to the house is surrounded by a gray-beige cast resin floor, which looks like plaster that has been spread on the floor leaving a uniform demeanor. the natural appearance creates a neutral base that doesn’t overshadow the design. the furniture is positioned in front of the main entrance. the dining room is separated from the living room by a column and sits between two glass walls, creating a feeling of standing outside despite being inside so the clients could have a quiet private space.

the space includes a white table and transparent plastic kartell chairs. next to the dining room is the kitchen where the central island (designed by lando) looks like a work of art. everything in the kitchen comes together to create a feeling that all the planning of the space is modest and gives the island the spotlight.
