Studio ETN transformed a 5-room apartment that became a 4-room apartment, which takes into consideration the couple’s unique needs such as accessibility, a resting room, and a balcony meant for breakfasts for them and their extended family. The design was driven by a modern and clean style, that still allows the couple to incorporate their own style into the space.

From the architect: A retried couple in their mid-70s and 80s of age who decided to embark on a daring adventure and move from the periphery to Tel Aviv, bringing them closer to their destination, their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and perhaps the pleasures of life that the big city has to offer. How charming of them? They decided to trust us and take us, Studio ETN to accompany them on the difficult journey for them, but very exciting for us.
In a southern Tel Aviv neighborhood and not the most desired apartment with not the most impressive opening data, left a little sad and gray apartment to the mercy of the studio. The five-room apartment has become a spacious and airy four-room apartment, with lots of lighting that will complement the days and nights and allow grandchildren and great-grandchildren to play and fill the spaces with joy.
Replaced all the water and sewage infrastructure, we completely renovated wet spaces, we added five square meters to the kitchen by breaking the wall of the unnecessary warehouse.
We expanded each passageway or entrance door, enabling us to enable proper passages and to provide full access. We have already said that the honorable couple is 70-80 years old? ... In a place where walls that broke and disappeared there were scars on the floor, which we covered in a beautiful oak wood parquet that separates the public spaces from the private.
A modest program: each has an armchair, a rest room and reading newspapers, a library for a respectable collection of books and photo albums that have accumulated over the generations, and a shared large walk-in closet!
