Ravit Dvir Architecture and Design
The open-plan living room features a wall of glass with sliding doors that lead out to a pool.
"The column had to be affordable and nice to look at," note the architects. "So we bought a tree and put it right in the middle of the building. Between the tree and the facade, we have created new floors which are built in a spiral around the tree. This results in a very dynamic and open space."

Fireplace Detail w/ Custom Hinged Screen
Though much of the interior was gutted, the west-wall fireplace was left intact due to the risk that removal could have had on the building's structural integrity.
The only feature that remains of the original home is the end gable wall. For the renovation, the stone on this wall has been left exposed. This feature, along with the wood-burning stove at the chimney area, are now the focal points of the living space.
High ceilings and a full-length brick fireplace are complemented by extensive glazing.
View of the living area
Double height living area opens onto the home's interconnecting courtyard and floods the living space with natural light.
The living spaces on the ground floor now consist of exposed steelwork with polished concrete, timber surfaces, and large Crittall windows.
Natural light and wood features connect the existing living area to the addition.
An off-center skylight brings natural light into the living room, where the existing fireplace (inset) was refinished in metallic paint. A fiberglass Koishi pouf by Naoto Fukasawa for Linea sits by an Eames sofa. The painting is by Vanessa Prager.
Expansive windows have been installed to flood the house with sunlight and capture sweeping views of the park outside.
With fresh white walls, larch parquet flooring, and a sleek black fireplace, the apartment now radiates an open, airy environment. A beautiful pink staircase appears to float in the middle of the common area, demarcating the boundary between the living and dining spaces.
The materials that have been used for the façade, together with the enfilade of spaces of the new volume, echo the local architecture of the elongated farmhouses in the area.
The shallow plan helps with cross ventilation, while a deep overhang to the north provides shade for the living areas in the summer.

Deep overhangs keep the harsh sun at bay.
Inside the studio, sliding fir screens hide storage, utilities, and a bathroom. The ceiling and wall panels are plywood, the floor is radiant heated concrete. An Eames lounge chair from Herman Miller mingles with an IKEA sofa.
Colourful furnishings animate the space. Thonet armchair, Jardan Nook lounge and Hay side tables provide a comfortable, deliberately low key setting.
In the living room, a pair of Frog chairs by Piero Lissoni for Living Divani join custom leather furnishings. The family can finally display all their books and artworks, including the large-scale piece, Topophilia-Imbuing in Monet, 2005, by Keiko Hara.
Colorful teal and green cushions decorate the built-in wood furniture. Simple open shelves extend along the living space, providing additional storage.
The Dining and Living Room
Miller House Sunken Living Room
Bornstein’s living room features an intriguing collection of furniture. The sofa is made by Swedish manufacturer Ire. The 1970s wood burner was a secondhand store find, and the wood table, by Bruno Mattson, was found in a bin at a recycling station. He inherited the lounge chair from his parents.
