When reconstructing a luxury apartment in the King David luxury tower on top of the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv, Israeli design firm Roy David Studio added functionality to make real fabulous living

The initial interior design of the apartment included a huge balcony which wasn’t proportional to the overall apartment space, and was left unused for most of the time. The designer gave a boundless make over to the structure of the existing apartment, successfully transforming the balcony into a large cutting edge living room.

“While approaching this project, I wanted to emphasise the sea relaxing colour plate, so it would accompany its future residents, and become part of their daily routine,” says David, founder of Roy David Studio.

Most of the furniture and décor elements in the apartment were custom-made, crafted from natural hickory wood integrated with black granite and brass. The material palate chosen dictates a use of minimalistic pieces yet creates a warm atmosphere.

The living room is furnished with an iconic Eames couch, an ancient Persian rug and a multi-plate coffee table which enables easy comfortable hosting. The glass dining table legs also align with the designer’s vision of the place and create a unique floating composition.

The master and guest suites were enlarged, and smart house technologies such as automatic lighting systems, electric curtains and double glazed UV filtered windows with an internal electric shading system were also added.
