A Glass Enclosed Home Office Allows Light And Views To Pass Through While Remaining A Separate Space

WE Architects has transformed a typical 70’s style apartment in Tel Aviv, Israel, that had old and neglected vibes.

One of the key design elements of the updated interior is the inclusion of a home office.

Located within the communal space, the home office is tucked away behind glass walls, allowing it to be separated from the open plan living room / kitchen / dining room, but at the same time, still being connected by sight.

The glass walls also enable the communal space to enjoy a flow of natural light from multiple directions thus creating a more spacious feel.

Let’s take a look at the other areas of the home…

The Living Room

The designer’s 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 that consists of a birch bench, allowing space for both relaxing in front of the TV and hosting a large number of guests comfortably.

The Kitchen

The adjacent kitchen is both minimalist in its design and its color. The matte black “L” shaped kitchen with a white countertop, wraps around the extendable round wooden dining table and incorporates open storage units dedicated specifically for frequently used appliances.

The Main Bedroom And Ensuite Bathroom

The main bedroom has an evergreen-colored accent wall that also includes the bedside storage units and the framing of the bed, creating a cohesive look. Outside the bedroom, there’s a small balcony, packed with lush vegetation and matching poppy tiles.
