Despite the lack of square footage, a home office is made possible thanks to a brilliant glass solution.
Like most of the new apartments being built in the bustling, modern city, of Tel Aviv, Israel, this 1076-square-foot unit located in a newly built glass tower in the heart of downtown was delivered as an unfinished space.
When clients approached Rust Architects with a request for a design that would include a home office, they also wanted the apartment to maintain an open loft-like feel despite the limited interior space.
Up for the challenge, architect Raanan Stern envisioned a solution in the form of a glass room that almost echoes the black steel and glass grid of the building's exterior. The partition also included a curtain to provide the requested sense privacy as needed.
"The glass room lets the natural light enter the main space, and gives the feeling of a continuous and bigger living space. On the other hand, it can also be shaded by the curtain and used as a separate room, " Stern says.
