Yulie Wollman Architects is a boutique firm, specializing on the design of houses, apartments in skyscrapers and workspaces in offices, operating from a design conception which emphasizes the architectural structure and the human aspect in space. The design approach typical for the firm’s projects drives to achieve perfection, relying primarily on the carefully balanced composition of materials and attention to all details, small and big alike.
The sophistication of interior design trends is the wisdom to smartly adopt them in combination with vision and imagination.
Yulie Wollman boutique firm presents the Floating Cube living space.
The main living space of the house was allocated a rather significant area, with the intention of creating two zones, an intimate family area and a wide, presentable area. The dividing was planned to enable the future merging of the spaces if needed. Above the space floats, perfectly balanced, a cube comprising concrete and glass, which constitutes the parents’ master suite. The unexpected contrast between the massive concrete and its light floating in space creates interest and surprise for people present in the area, and the large windows of the suite provide a panoramic view down, towards the public space, to create eye contact, control and involvement.
A tall, wide door welcomes the people entering the house. It opens inwards to the interior of the house and the foyer, which reveals a view of the patio, in which a piece of art, tailored for the space’s requirements, is placed. I have created the art element specifically to address the space, since no preexisting piece matching the space in its measures and presence could be found. I chose to create a round-contoured, kinetic sculpture, hanging and moving in the space, with its negative silhouette engraved on the elevator wall, also serving to blur the elevator door.
Two doors lead into the kitchen: from the living area, a black glass electric door, and from the dining room, a crafted door integrally blending in with the wall. The barrier enables private, comfortable hosting in the dining room.
The kitchen itself is equipped with wide windows and a panoramic balcony, overlooking a waterfall descending over terraces towards the basement.
