The house is designed to integrate the interiors with the exteriors surrounding it. An emphasis is placed on using typical Israeli elements such as white cubic Bauhaus style, terrazzo floorings, and natural light pouring in through large windows. The choice of furniture and materials reveal a deep understanding of today’s contemporary international scene, and fine tuning in placing them together ,creating an on-going interaction between them.
A roof garden with steel containers serving as designed objects, was meticulously planned by Michal Keinan Sinai to be seen from the inside. Outdoors elements such as wood, cactus are being repeated and echoed throughout the house, reflecting on the relationship exterior- interior.

170 sq.m Apartment, designed for a couple who’s children left the home.
The challenge was to make a fresh modern start, but still keep the intellectual character of its owners present.
This was achieved by keeping a color pallet that matches the urban/sea/skyline that contrasts the white clean frame of the space.
Several made to measure carpentry items i.e The library, the kitchen table, the bedroom drawers unit’ etc.. were planned to warm up modern cold space.
