Almost poetic – like Shakespeare but not quite, like a work of art but not quite – this is how I viewed the R1T Apartment completed by Paritzki Liani Architects, which is located in Tel Aviv, Israel. The angle “L” shape volume for this dream home is positioned slightly higher, 80 meters, above the ground level of a tower-facing southwest area of Tel Aviv. This position is visually reaching the endless coastline of Jaffa port, which is a few kilometers away.
The concept utilized in this modern home is to create a natural supplementary material that corresponds to the visual territorial scale – which is essentially the landscape. This is allowed the integration of the city’s design into the interiors of the modern architecture. Personally, I love how they developed the concept in this interior design. They’ve taken into account the entire territorial scale and rendered the interiors virtually the same concept.
The house floor plans and layout followed an “L” shape, which have three routes all traced on this inner perimeter. The first route is the entryway which was internally duplicated – specifically the parallel passage covered with wood that led to the night area. It terminated and replicated in congruence with the sea, which was made possible by the mirror or glass wall. The parallel passage is the second route while the third route was shorter and virtually hidden.
The third passage leads to the great kitchen and dining space until the dark service zone until it turned into an obscured passage.
The design concept also followed the “sky” which rendered the living spaces “flying away from the world.” This is what made the entire home almost surreal and unreal. It is actually the focal point of design where everything else fell into an illusion. If I know better, I would really call this their “ultra-sexy ceiling.” It features the elegant and sophisticated PVC ceiling and right then I know the hands of a genius are at work.
The ceiling where everything revolved around manipulated how we viewed the overall apartment. Personally, I find it really inspirational and the seamless transition between the moods and colors made the space evoke a romantic feeling. The romance is in the air for this design concept and it was beautifully implemented.
