TA Apartment by Maya Sheinberger

TA Apartment is a project designe by Maya Sheinberger. Originally, the apartment consisted of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a guest toilet. A new interior division was required to adapt to the lifestyle of the young family, which wanted an open space with a light atmosphere and an airy, modern and bright look. The kitchen area and dining area were enlarged at the expense of the canceled guest restroom. In addition, the entrance to the laundry room was relocated to the kitchen area, and another bedroom that served as an office was reduced so that the master suite could be enlarged.

The public space of the apartment is revealed from the entrance, which opens into the living room and has a large window facing the trees next to the building. A white iron minimalist library with thin shelves is installed on the TV wall, providing room for a TV and shelving for displays of books and ornaments. The entire space is paved with natural oak hardwood floors. A graphite gray corner sofa was placed with a black-and-white photo by Israeli photographer Ailon Glitzenstein above it. Above the deep red carpet with its geometric ethnic pattern are two solid wood tables with different finishes, one with a natural oak finish and one with a blackened finish. Two white tracking lights were installed along with the library and the sofa. Incorporating black and mustard rattan armchairs with walnut wood added delicate touches of color to the space. The cushions were selected in natural shades and in different fabrics and textures.

On the right side of the entrance is a kitchen, designed in an L shape, with a side of low cabinets, a sink, a dishwasher, and a stove, and a long side with a high cabinet unit with a refrigerator, oven, and microwave. A peninsula provides additional storage as well as seating for light meals. The finish of the kitchen cabinets are smoky gray, and the countertop is white with delicate tendrils in shades of gray. For the backsplash, hand-painted bricks were chosen in the same shade as the surface with a glossy finish and placed vertically to create a sense of higher space. A strong L-shaped recessed lighting was chosen, as well as recessed spots lights above the peninsula to compensate there is no window in the kitchen area.
