A penthouse in Tel Aviv Tel Aviv, Israel
Irma Orenstein
Gessi Products:

In Tel Aviv, the loft designed by the architect Irma Orenstein is located inside a residential skyscraper with a fine view over the Mediterranean Sea. It is a scenographic sequence of open spaces, breathtaking landscapes, passages that introduce to the following rooms without interruption or segmentation of the space, but with a continuous interaction between interiors and outsides. Not even the bathroom is preserved from this philosophy, with the shower set inside the master room, separated from the sleeping area by a thin concrete panel, with no door and a spectacular basin Rettangolo by Gessi, integrated in the lower block which serves as head of the bed. In this way it also designs a passage with a linear perspective to infinity over the glass walls, that creates continuity between interiors and outsides. The architect’s fondness for simplicity and rigours has produced a minimalist interior design, almost totally white, with rare granting of black and colours, as well as unexpected Italian design elements, such as Boa sofa by Edra, kitchenware by Fornasetti, table and armchairs by Cassina. All the bathrooms are furnished with Gessi tap sets. They are resolute choices which do not steal the show to the spectacular Tel Aviv sunsets.
