"We found ourselves skipping between construction sites with a pregnant belly" | Israel today


We sat down to talk with two successful female architects, who shared their secrets with us • So what store is worth flying to, and what design book must appear on your coffee table? • New section

New section: "Design in their eyes" is a section where architects and designers share tips and places that must be marked next to them.

And this time - Shira Moskal and Hadas Roth from the planning and design office: Hillel Architecture

Israeli product designer

The industrial designer and artist Shaul Cohen excites us with his miniature models of old buildings.

The one who introduced him to me was my daughter.

He produces with great sensitivity miniature models that document existing buildings and it is fascinating to see the beauty he brings out precisely from the graceless, simplest and most Israeli buildings.

Fascinating to follow.

A must see gallery

We were captivated by the magic of the textile designer Tamar Barnitsky.

It's an intimate gallery in an old apartment building in the Gan El-Hayrak neighborhood in Tel Aviv and it's a must-see.

The gallery is very personal and homely - it has a sort of domestic living room, and on the table are displayed the sketchbooks that are an inspiration for me.

When I'm there I feel like I'm peeking into the books and getting right into Tamar's head.

A design store

, worth buying a plane ticket for

We recommend visiting a store of a British chain called Oliver Bonas, which reminds a bit of Anthropologie.

This is a popular chain that has clothes, accessories and items for dressing the home.

The store is fun, exciting and accessible, and full of colors and textures.

It has a bit of an oriental orientation and is full of chic.

The tip for a perfect combination of colors in the space

We advocate a base of a calm tone combined with some more colorful accents, which will be reflected in the carpet, pillows, items and art, but with care not to mix too many shades. 

The color comes from the fronts of the kitchen, the carpet, the front door and the decorative pillows.

The most important tip when approaching home design

When approaching home design it is important to start from a collection of inspirations in order to formulate a personal style.

The inspiration can be found in the simplest things - seashells, dried leaves, in an old box we got from grandma.

Inspiration for combining styles - between modern and rustic, between stylish and minimalist.

Combinations between modern and rustic.

A designed book is a decorative item for everything.

There is nothing like placing a magnificent book on the coffee table in the living room.

What is this book for you?

 A life less ordinary, a perfect book about two women who opened a lifestyle store full of simplicity and beauty.

Beyond the content, we are in love with the cover of the book that upgrades every coffee table.

An interesting story that you especially remember

We took on several big projects and at the same time we both planned to expand the family.

We agreed that Hadas would get pregnant first and I would follow her, so that we could deal with the pressure at work, but in the end the coordination went wrong and we found ourselves pregnant at the same time, hopping between construction sites with a pregnant belly.

were we wrong

We will fix it!
