Located in an 80-year-old modernist building in the heart of Tel-Aviv, “DE Apartment” was renovated by architect Meirav Galan.


Fascinated by the unique wooden windows and meticulous craftsmanship details of the building, originally designed by renowned Israeli architect Dov Karmi in the 1940s, Galan knew she wanted to preserve the nostalgic vibes while ensuring that the space meets its contemporary needs and becomes a cozy home.


The original interior walls of the 160m2 apartment were removed and the dilapidated but beautiful doors and windows were restored. In addition, a new architectural scheme was planned from scratch, corresponding with the original structural grid and facade.


The interior design is a balance between original mid-century and contemporary, between European and local, between richness and simplicity, between bespoke carpentry and specially picked items, as well as between minimalism and softness.


The apartment is relatively big by Tel-Avivian standards, yet “micro-designed”.


Each space was maximized and designed down to the last detail including each room with the decor, furniture, and art that support the larger idea.
