Sometimes it’s love at first sight.
In this case, they were a cute couple who had just purchased a typical 70’s style apartment, which had old and neglected vibes. It was located in central Tel-Aviv, near the Ichilov hospital. As an architect, one must be both highly creative and very analytical, in order to create a final result that embed both aesthetic and practical qualities.
It was a perfect match for WE Architects, since this couple was the perfect example of such a combination – the husband has a very creative and unorthodox skill set, while the wife is a prominent entrepreneur in the intelligence-tech industry (with a very good taste in shoes, if I might add). The type that you will one day find in a Forbes magazine’s 40 under 40 article.
Since they both come from warm-hearted families, in which hospitality is key, designers wanted to challenge the conventional seating arrangement options.
Their approach was to find an elegant way to both accommodate a large number of people while entertaining, but without sacrificing a large portion of the living and storage spaces.This led them to design a solution which consists of a birch bench, which allows both chilling in front of the TV and hosting a large number of guests comfortably.
