After receiving some positive feedback on the DIY-inspired home we featured here, we decided to feature another unique home that was designed by an industrial design student who is just 27 years old and lives in Tel Aviv, Israel. Ron Benshoshan and his girlfriend had just purchased their first apartment and the place was in need of a major overhaul, so they decided to do all the renovations themselves. The 65 square meters apartment was built in the 70’s, the couple wished to have a contemporary yet functional design that is attractive and comfortable. With a limited budget and a short time frame, the project was daunting as everything needed to be replaced. Due to the budgetary constraints, it led the couple in a new direction, consisting of hand crafting and building the majority of the items that are featured in the project. It took approximately two months to complete.
Here is a description of the project from the homeowners, “In short we re-did the whole place: Tore down the wall in the kitchen opening it up to the living room and dining area. United the bathroom making one long and spacious bathroom. Made the bedroom bigger by closing an indoor balcony. A bar that comes out of the wall. I personally designed and built most of the items seen in the pictures: Large wall clock, floating unit below the TV, round table and red chairs, table, pipe lamp and the cats playing area which is hung in the red room, faucet in the bathroom, wooden bar, lights in the living room (with red cords)
bed and side table in bedroom.” Via
