A penthouse apartment, situated in Newe Tzedek, a historical neighborhood, in the south of Tel Aviv. The architecture of the neighborhood is characterized by low buildings, with tile roofing, and building on zero street level. The clients, whose grown up children have left home, so they decided to settle down in Newe Tzedek.
They bought two identical 170 sq. mts. apartments, in a construction building, with concrete roofs and a 125 sq. mts. surrounding balcony. The planning concept was to create a 350 sq. mts., versatile apartment, which will enable the owners hosting in large spaces, as well as adapting them to the couple’s every day lifestyle.
The balcony, which surrounds the whole apartment, was brought inside as a second, smaller living room. It works as a connection between the public and the private areas. An inside space, which can become an outside one, was created by building a skylight roof and a vertical garden on one of the walls.
This green wall and the complete planning of this apartment, suits the green and sustainable building approach, which our office supports.
