Well Arranged 44 Sqm Apartment for a Couple in Tel Aviv by XS Studio
44 Sqm isn’t that small, but is definitely not big as well. To have a comfortable living space for a couple and a dog is for sure need some thoughtful thinking. Besides the fact of fairly small floor area, there are 12 square meters non-movable shelter room walls. Hence, it is important for the rest of the space to be as open as possible. In order to avoid partitions, a huge wooden black cabinet is used to separate the bedroom and living room. The cabinet stores functions such as a liquor bar, audio system, air conditioning and more. Books, collections, television and ornaments are displayed on the cabinet’s shelves. On the entrance side, the cabinet makes room for “the Pole Dancer”. Height plays a significant role in the feeling of this space and its use. A ladder embedded in the kitchen Cabinet allows easy access to the high storage in the kitchen and cabinet on both sides.
The pole dancer is made of lite and airy materials (steel mesh, mirror, steel and very little dark veneer-covered wood) which almost completely conceals it. Additionally, it spins on a pivot, creating a dynamic and lite feeling unlike the other furniture, which is heavy and fixed to the walls. Functionally, one side of the dancer has a place for hanging coats, putting down the keys, newspapers and mail, and on its other side, a mirror.
Besides the fancy pole dancer, the moving wooden plate in the kitchen allows owner to have more seating space and work space when they are hosting. And due to the layout and compact design, they can easily cook and be part of the conversation.
