Tower Apt. No1 in Tel Aviv by RUST architects

Located in a new building in the center of Tel Aviv, Israel, the Tower Apt. No1 spans 100 square meters (approx. 1076 square feet) and began as an empty, unfinished space with much of the perimeter being floor-to-ceiling windows. After the young couple purchased the apartment, they hired RUST architects to bring the space to life with a highly functional floor plan and a loft-like feel.

The interior’s aesthetic merges soft, cozy materials with raw, industrial ones, including iron, glass, and rough wood. Overall, the color scheme leans towards black and white with blue filling in as an accent color.

The concrete ceiling remained untouched leaving the lighting to be left exposed for that industrial feel.

An office was built within a black iron and glass room that allows daylight in while offering privacy.

Throughout, family objects were incorporated with the couple’s things to bring a bit of history to the space. New cabinets and furniture were made from old antique doors that came from their grandmother’s house, and lighting was repurposed for the new space.

In the bedroom, a wall of wood disguises doors to the bathroom and closet with a television in the middle.
